Taking care of your Yankee cylinder encompasses many activities and actions starting with the purchase decision.  Once your Yankee is on site and in operation, there are a number of regulations, best practices, and recommendations that can not only improve Yankee safety but also save you money.  In this webinar, we will discuss record keeping and documentation requirements and recommendations. 

We also review the different levels of Yankee dryer inspections ranging from visual inspections to fitness for service inspections.  The topic will ultimately cover how maintaining a safe Yankee dryer not only helps to ensure a safe environment for those working around the Yankee but also adds life and longevity to the asset.
