Five checks at shutdown when inspecting rubber covered rolls
At a shutdown, to determine if the cover should be taken out of service for either regrind or recover, inspect the cover for these five issues.
Ten step procedure for patch repair of rubber roll covers
The trick is don’t rush the job; take your time and keep the patch area clean. You’ll need a Dremel, heating platen and uncured, un-vulcanized rubber stock.
Common ways an OEM partner helps mills achieve their goals
Maintaining a strong relationship with a trusted OEM partner lets producers learn from the industry’s manufacturing legacy and keep operations moving forward.
Forming OEM partnerships to optimize pulp mill performance
As an OEM, Valmet has the resources and expertise to identify root causes of existing system limitations, and develop realistic paths to optimize performance.
The knowledge-sharing advantage of strong OEM partnerships
Managing the loss of expert insight and the need for succession planning challenges manufacturers today, particularly those in the pulp and paper industries.
Comparison of hard and soft bearing roll balancing methods
Hard bearing type balancers measure residual unbalance. Soft bearing type balancers use a stroboscope and pickups to measure vibration amplitude and direction.
Planning roll maintenance yields the best uptime and efficiency
Operating machines at high speeds, longer operation periods between shutdowns and higher operating efficiency requires a planned roll maintenance policy.
Storage, operation and maintenance of rubber covered rolls
Analysis of your roll records identifies ways to improve rubber roll performance. The cover is a measuring instrument indicating where changes are needed.
Maintenance and operation of press stretchers and guides
The paper machine has a number of various loop-type fabrics, wires and felts, which must have a specific tension and controlled position in the cross direction of the paper machine (usually in the middle) so that the paper machine operates properly and as designed.
