Steam is needed in the drying section of the paper machine. There it is used to heat the drying cylinders for drying the paper web. The steam is usually generated in the company's own power plant and fed in via an insulated supply line. To ensure optimal consumption and demand planning, the flow rate is continuously measured via an orifice plate with a built-in differential pressure transmitter.
