Home / Case Study / A plywood manufacturer with 15 daylight and 16 daylight capacity heating and cooling press in North India

Problem
- Frequent blowdown during heating cycle causing major loss of live steam to the cooling tower

- High heating time due to condensate logging in the press
Objective
- To eliminate loss of steam due to manual operation of the steam and cooling water valves

- To eliminate the issue of condensate logging 
Solution
- Detailed plant study by Forbes Marshall to assess current losses and potential savings in the steam line of the system

- Installation of Forbes Marshall's plattenMAC automation package for heating and cooling presses
Benefits
- Manual operation of bypass valves eliminated

- Automatic separation of condensate and cooling water

- Reduction in live steam loss

- Optimum condensate recovery

- 7 minutes reduction in heating time due to proper trapping system

- Improved productivity due to Improved performance of the heating-cooling presses : number of batches increased to 38/day from 32/day
