Acoustic Ultrasound in Pulp and Paper
CTRL works closely with several organizations in the paper/pulp industry to identify cost saving opportunities. We helped a paper mill reduce its energy usage by 20% through compressed air, equalling $145,000 in annual savings. The payback period of the turn-key projects was less than 18 months for monitoring, implementing ultrasound, detecting leaks, and repairing. The corrugated industry has found ways to maximize production, minimize downtime, and reduce energy waste through compressed air and steam leak detection. We helped one corrugated plant reduce catastrophic failure to 0% using UL101 products and InCTRL, turning the plant into a top 5 producer within its industry. Our solutions can help you to quickly detect air leaks while the plant is in operation, implement proper lubrication, and monitor for early signs of gearbox and bearing failures.
The UL101 Difference
Easy to use
Allow for detection at a high distance when you combine the UL101 with the PowerBeam 300.
UL101 products are ruggedized for use in caustic environments, including power plants.
Competitively priced UL101 products let you lower costs by 3-5 times compared to methods like vibration reliability testing.
Simple to learn
Reduce time in training with our modules that teach you to successfully operate the UL101 within an hour to a few days.
What Sets CTRL Apart
Our ultrasound condition-based monitoring (CBM) takes place in a non-destructive testing (NDT) environment, allowing users to inspect and accurately monitor assets while equipment is fully operational. Our hardware is supported by in-person and cloud-based training, as well as a first-of-its-kind data management platform: InCTRL. The CTRL approach to acoustic ultrasound CBM is viable for a single-site operation or a global multi-site organization.
