Sensodec 6S for paper
Sensodec 6S is the integrated solution to machinery condition monitoring and runnability analysis. The system analyzes hundreds of high frequency process pulsations or mechanical vibrations in a paper production line, finishing line or any maintenance-sensitive pulp or paper mill operation. Sensodec 6S is also applied in energy generation plants and in many process industries. With the instant information and analysis available from the 6S system, maintenance personnel can predict and plan machinery maintenance at the right time and for the right reasons and machine operators can react to changing process conditions to increase paper runnability and machine productivity.
Paper Machinery Condition Monitoring
The system analyzes the mechanical condition of machinery components including bearings, shafts, motors and other drive train components. By using sophisticated yet easy to understand analysis tools, machine operators and maintenance staff are quickly alerted to mechanical problems in their early phases of development. Unplanned machinery downtime and runnability problems are avoided.
Paper Machine Runnability Analysis
To determine the causes of sheet instabilities, Runnability Analysis analyzes and compares vibration measurements, process pulsation measurements and online product quality measurements at many locations. It isolates the causes of machine instability to a specific component or machinery group like the forming section, press section, size press or calender. Operators can then take corrective action to avoid quality problems and increase productivity. Runnability Analysis also includes Dewatering Analysis in the forming and press sections.
Calender Condition Monitoring
Finishing line operators are alerted to vibrations that might indicate irregularities in roll shape, profiles, premature roll failures or mechanical problems in the drive system. Unneccesary downtime is avoided and calender roll lifetimes are prolonged. Sensodec 6S protects your investment in soft roll calendering technology.
Fabric and Machinery Component Performance Management
Sensodec 6S compares and evaluates the performance of press felts, forming fabrics, rolls and other paper machinery components so that the lifecycles of these components can be managed for maximum machinery performance and productivity.
