Swedish specialty pulp mill Aspa Bruk has placed an order for SPM's most advanced online system Intellinova Parallel EN to monitor the mechanical and lubrication condition of the mill's pulp dryer and wood chipper.
The two Intellinova Parallel EN systems will measure the condition of bearings and gears on drying cylinders, guide rollers, motor, gearbox, and chipper bearings - all to avoid unplanned stops and breakdowns to achieve higher machine availability and maximized production.
Using DuoTech sensors, which combine the patented measurement technologies HD ENV and SPM HD, clear and easy-to-interpret vibration and shock pulse measurement results are provided with exceptional prewarning times for deteriorating mechanical condition. The contract also includes a remote condition monitoring service, where SPM service engineers continuously notify the mill's maintenance personnel of alarms and deviations and send monthly reports. SPM is responsible for the installation and delivery of turnkey systems.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk manufactures bleached and unbleached sulfate pulp from renewable raw materials. The mill has about 190 employees.
