The Yankee dryer is a large, steam-heated, pressure vessel that is used in the production of tissue grades. After the tissue sheet is dried by the Yankee dryer and Yankee hoods to its final moisture target, it is creped and removed from the Yankee by the creping doctor. The "dry creping" process is responsible for the bulk, stretch, and softness that are desirable in tissue grades. This course describes what happens to the sheet during dry creping, factors that influence dry creping results, the design and operation of the creping blade, and blade angles and sheet angles associated with the creping blade.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Differentiate between wet crepe and dry crepe
  • Describe the dry creping process
  • Describe the importance of the Yankee coating in creping
  • Describe the purpose of crepe control
  • Describe creping blade setup and geometry
  • Describe the effect of sheet path angles

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is dry creping?
Dry creping is creping a fully-dried sheet off the Yankee dryer.

What sheet properties are affected by the creping process?
Creping impacts caliper/bulk, stretch, softness, and tensile strength.

What factors affect crepe quality?
The crepe is affected by the speed difference between the reel and the Yankee dryer, creping blade angles and loading pressure, creping blade length or ""stick out"", sheet adhesion to the dryer surface, and creping blade design and geometry.

What is the blade wear angle?
It is the angle of wear on the creping blade. It is equal to the angle between Yankee tangent line and the back of the creping blade under operating loads.

What is the creping pocket angle?
The creping pocket angle is the angle between the Yankee tangent line and the top edge of the creping blade.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

The last important angle is the creping angle or pocket angle, which is defined as the angle between the Yankee tangent line and the creping blade surface. The crepe pocket angle is very important in determining the resulting crepe structure in the sheet. Crepe pocket angles typically range from 65 to 95 degrees. It is interesting to note that during production, the creping angle is actually determined by the blade wear angle and the blade grind angle. The relationship between them is described by this equation, creping angle equals 90 degrees minus blade wear angle plus blade grind angle. This means that the creping angle can be increased by either increasing the blade grind angle or decreasing the blade wear angle.

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
