    Abstract

    Molded pulp products are made from cellulose fibers dispersed in water then formed, drained and dried. As in the conventional papermaking process, the most energ yintensive operation (including time) is drying. To gain a better understanding of the process parameters involved and to investigate their influence on the final product’s dryness, two experimental plans were designed and analyzed by means of design of experiments (DOE).A numerical simulation of the heat model was developed with the aim of finding the process time window.
