AbstractIn an endeavour to meet the need within the pulp and paper industry for information on building construction, a survey of existing machine rooms was carried out by means of questionnaire and by visits to several mills. During the visits, temperature and humidity readings were taken.; the average condtion within the machine room was found to be 94 deg. F. and 53 per cent relative humdity. The quantity of water vapour released into the machine room from the wet end is estimated as being equal to one third of that evaporated in the dryer section, and the need for enclosing the wet end is stressed. The performance of different materials and types of roof and wall construction is discussed and it is concluded that, except for the use of a complete ceiling below the roof truss as a protection for the roof deck, no one material or layout is superior.
