1 Evolving as a Chemical Engineer Presented by: Robin Smith 23 September 2010

2 2 Background ND: Chemical Engineering Final year student at CPUT (Bellville Campus) Experiential learning at Sappi Cape Kraft Aspire to be the best in all aspects of life Great interest in steam sections

3 3 ? Why Chemical Engineering Learn how things work Next best thing Broad industry Money, money, money

4 4 Challenges Placement for in-service training Student life vs working life Becoming accustomed to the Sappi way – “homo sappi an” The real world is a harsh world How does Chemical Engineering fit into the Pulp and Paper Industry Limited pulp and paper knowledge Applying theoretical knowledge Safety first

5 5 Learning/ Experiences The only person that stops you from learning is yourself! Experience comes only once mistakes are made Six students, one must shine! Things take time Importance of Laboratory test work Dry End Steam Section

6 6 DRY END STEAM SECTION Basic steam knowledge 37 Drying cylinders in 4 steam sections Cascading system Steam supplied by EB steam Optimisation of steam consumption Maxiflo steam trial

7 7 DRY END STEAM SECTION

8 8 Heat transfer Conduction: Convection: Heat transfer through drying cylinder: 160°C 30°C steel

9 9 Trials Two devronizer trials at Dry-end: steam section Enessco trial at noodle plant Drying cylinder 5 modification Current Maxiflo trial at Dry End steam section Coater trials – coating 75 g/ m 2

10 10 To clean or not to clean Best and worst 11 hour experience in my life Mind over matter “Everything that has a beginning, has an end”

11 11 Career Aspirations Be recognised for going the extra mile To be the best in whatever I do “The difference between an ordinary engineer and an extraordinary engineer is just that little bit extra ”
