Automation Benefits for Starch Media Dry Stripping 951448
Recent development efforts for Starch Media Dry Stripping (SMDS) confirm that significant gains in production efficiency are achievable through automation. The primary benefits of automation and its impact on stripping operations are discussed in quantitative terms. The paper demonstrates that the automation of the SMDS process provides major reductions in stripping cycle times at competitive operating costs. Most importantly, this approach avoids the need to dedicate a hanger to dry stripping of transport aircraft.
