On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Nov. 7-9, 2012, TAPPI will conduct its Tissue Runnability Course at Neenah, Wis., USA. The course is being taught by technical experts in each area of the machine from wet end operations through creping and process control. The experienced faculty for this course will provide a thorough understanding of the entire tissue-making process and the current best practices in each area.

Wednesday’s classes will focus on stock preparation and wet end operations, while Tuesday’s classes cover pressing, drying, and doctoring. Wednesday classes examine technologies and latest developments in hoods, TAD (through-air drying), and other dynamics of the tissue machine dry end.

The 2012 TAPPI Tissue Runnability Course is designed for process engineers, machine supervisors, and reliability professionals who have to maximize uptime and saleable production. It is also an excellent tutorial for suppliers who support tissue-making customers. It will help attendees:

  • Improve tissue quality and consistency
  • Understand contributors to waste and downtime
  • Learn reliability and maintenance best practices
  • Diagnose and troubleshoot problems quickly.

The course will focus specifically on how to:

  • Diagnose the impact of recycled furnishes on tissue properties
  • Make changes to wet end chemistry to improve machine operation
  • Improve cleaning and conditioning of fabrics
  • Troubleshoot runnability problems in the press, Yankee, and creping systems
  • Identify improvement opportunities on the dry end
  • Pinpoint productivity opportunities in Yankee steam, coating, and hood systems.

TAPPI will award CEU credits to participants who attend at least 80% of the educational sessions and complete a final program evaluation. Attendance for the 2012 TAPPI Tissue Runnability Course is limited, so please register today at the course website.
