Kadant Johnson Inc., a subsidiary of Kadant Inc., successfully started up its ThermoMax® steam system at Norampac's corrugated packaging plant in Drummondville, Quebec, Canada.

The ThermoMax steam system features supervisory control logic to ensure consistent production and reliable operations. Operators have high visibility into the system through a graphical interface.
