In the paper and pulp industry, mills often operate 24/7 so the cost of unplanned shutdowns is high. The benefits of condition monitoring and predictive maintenance have long been appreciated in this sector, and vibration monitoring plays a major role. Production machinery that can be monitored includes forming, pressing,drying and finishing equipment.

The sensor configurations for a paper mill must be carefully planned to take account of the prevailing conditions in the wet and dry areas of the machinery. Monitran’s 2200 and 2200-4P sensors, along with their side-entry and submersible counterparts, are particularly recommended for the hot and wet conditions found in paper production machinery.

Where space is limited Monitran recommend their 1100S sensor, a low-profile accelerometer which allows otherwise inaccessible areas to be monitored safely.
