SPM has supplied condition monitoring solutions to the pulp and paper industry for many years. Our first customers were North European paper mills in the beginning of the 1970s.
Condition monitoring is a cornerstone in the asset management of pulp and paper plants. Having control of the operating condition is a must to optimize plant profitability. Maintaining availibility, maximizing fore-warning time and avoiding secondary damages are the main reasons for applying condition based monitoring in pulp and paper.
Typical applications in pulp and paper are conveyor belts, chippers, chip classifiers, blowers, screw conveyors, refiners, pressure screens, agitators, nip monitoring, felt rollers, spreader rolls, suction rolls, yankee cylinders, drying cylinders, vacuum pumps, realers, and also electrical motors, pumps, fans and gears.
Taking into account the harsh environment of paper mills, SPM offers every piece of hardware and software equipment you need for an efficient condition monitoring solution, from the point of data collection all the way through to evaluated measurement data. Our products and measuring techniques are specifically developed for the needs of the pulp and paper industry.
