Ultrasound Condition-Based Monitoring

Ultrasound for the Paper and Pulp Industry

  • Multiple corrugator facilities adopted ultrasound CBM; CTRL developed implementation program and procedures for the organization.

  • Reduced compressor failure rate from 25% to less than 5%; estimated annual energy savings of $100k per facility.

  • By moving from preventative maintenance to ultrasound CBM, the organization improved corrugator roll lifetime by 100%; $120k savings per roll/3 years.

  • Estimated first year ROI of 13:1 (96 hours of averted downtime x $3500/hour). One successful facility reported only one (1) catastrophic bearing failure in 7 years.

  • One team diagnosed an impending failure in an obsolete gearbox early and avoided catastrophic failure. The manufacturer lead time for re-building the gearbox was 22 weeks. Because the re-build commenced very early in the failure cycle, the facility experienced no overall production loss.
