What does an Ager Operator do?

Controls continuous process equipment to age alkali cellulose for use in cellophane manufacture: Takes wet and dry-bulb temperature readings in air ducts through which cellulose will pass on conveyor and calculates humidity in ducts, using graphs. Reads instruction tables to determine setting of conveyor screws and belts under existing humidity conditions. Turns screws to adjust conveyor speed to regulate length of aging cycle, and to set humidistat that maintains specified humidity in ducts. Records operating data.
