Yankee hood and dust control system successfully started up at Disley Tissue


The Metso-supplied Advantage AirCap hood and Advantage WetDust system at Disley Tissue near Manchester in the United Kingdom were successfully started up last autumn. The Advantage AirCap hood is based on the latest technology and best energy saving principles: in this case it is designed to remarkably increase the production without affecting the current energy consumption.

The Advantage WetDust system applies the patented, innovative concept of a fully wet system to capture dust at the source by encapsulating it in water.

The installation of these two Metso systems will support Disley Tissue in decreasing environmental impact, optimizing the process and improving working conditions. «We chose Metso, because they provided the best technological solution for the hood replacement and new dust system; to improve the health of our employees, reduce our impact on the environment and improve our cost base considerably», says Chris Wickham, Managing Director of Disley Tissue.
