Customer testimonials - Ortviken Paper Mill
Ortviken Paper Mill in Sweden is owned by SCA and produces coated publication papers, LWC and newsprint on four paper machines with an annual production capacity of 850.000 tons. They monitor their twin wire presses used for pulp dewatering, normally running at 6 to 15 rpm, with SPM online system Intellinova.
Following the installation of the system with SPM HD in June, 2010, six bearing damages have been successfully identified. Examination of the replaced bearings have verified that SPM HD does indicate the correct type of bearing damage and bearing replacement costs are now significantly reduced.
Urban Lander, maintenance manager at SCA Ortviken, comments:
After a few months of bearing condition measurement with SPM HD, we conclude that it works completely and to our full satisfaction.
We are now planning for the application of SPM HD on more low RPM machinery and we can recommend SPM HD to other users with similar bearing problems.
