Proper set up and operation of Yankee doctors is crucial to producing first quality product and maintaining the health of the Yankee. When operating a machine 24/7 from outage to outage, it is just not feasible to check the alignment and profile of the Yankee doctors. Waiting for downtime is often too late. However, checking the wear pattern and blade angle on used creping, cleaning and skinning blades between outages is now possible. The Blade View™ measurement device provides blade wear data in a short time, on site and in a repeatable manner.
Jack Allen, Tissue Process Specialist for Kadant Solutions, walks you through proper Yankee blade wear measurement using the Blade View measurement device.
