Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

What's high in the middle and round on the ends? Well, Ohio of course, and TAPPI's Ohio Local Section is high on planning for their next meeting (April 9, 2010 at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio). Ok, bad joke – but no where near a bad meeting!

Recently, Larry Montague and Eric Fletty had the pleasure of visiting Appleton's West Carrollton Mill and not only saw TAPPI members (from both Appleton and Ashland – Hercules) in action but discussed plans for the upcoming Ohio TAPPI Local Section Meeting. The Local Section has undergone a reinvention of itself and has a great event planned. For just $10, (register by March 26th for this early bird rate) you get:

  • 9:00 AM - Upgrades and modernization of stock prep systems - J. Kerr, ANDRITZ
  • 10:00 AM - Doctor blade setting - S. Cockerham, KADANT
  • 11:00 AM - Paper machine water management for the Fourdrinier -S. Stewart, JOHNSON FOILS
  • Lunch (provided)
  • 2:00 PM - Automation: Color control & air systems, air dryers, heat recovery -T. Betteridge & M. Harrison, METSO
  • 3:00 PM - How CD moisture actuators can save energy - J. Spachman, ABB
