Vacuum at a paper machine is used for a variety of reasons, for dewatering the paper sheet but also for holding and controlling the paper route through the press section and conditioning the press felts. Vacuum is also used to hold and control the water jet at a suction roll. 

Vacuum is an expensive tool and often excessively used. With the increasing cost of energy, to stay competitive paper mills are demanding reduced operational costs. Therefore, it makes sense to review air flow demands and, when suitable, apply an old school thinking, i.e. nip-dewatering.
