Intelligent Estimation of Web Break Sensitivity in Paper Machines

  title={Intelligent Estimation of Web Break Sensitivity in Paper Machines},
  author={Timo Ahola},
The ambition to increase the production of paper has made paper machine runnability widely studied in recent decades. Paper machine runnability is often measured by the number of web breaks in comparison with paper machine speed. When runnability is good, a machine can be run at the desired speed with the least possible number of breaks. Web break sensitivity means the number of breaks in a day, which can also be understood as a measurement of paper machine runnability. This study presents an… CONTINUE READING
