The objection of this work was to establish a useable format for developing an idea into a working model and to verify that format by example.
The format is outlined as follows:
Establish a need
The example used to verify the format was a comparison of various forward cleaner sequences to determine if an improvement could be made over the current cascade system. After completion of the model format, it was determined that an alpha/alpha cleaning system would prove more cost effective than a cascade system if it was run at feed consistencies greater than .55%. The incremental cleaning efficiency would allow for lower cost stocks to be used, thus defraying the increased capital costs. The overall application of the model format proved very effective.
