For their mill in Dagang, China, Gold East Paper decided in favor of the advanced OnV Condition Monitoring system from Voith which monitors bearings. It is installed at the mechanical pulping line of the stock preparation and helps to prevent unplanned machine downtimes.
The system consists of 166 new vibration sensors. The vibration measurements are processed enabling analyses and diagnoses for early detection of bearing damages. An extension of the sensor assembly by 25 vibration detectors is planned to monitor further bearings. The new monitoring system will provide optimal availability of the machine and thus save costs.
After years of good cooperation and experiences, Gold East Paper is again putting its trust in Voith. The reliability of the already installed condition monitoring systems in the PM 3 and the offline coating machine 2 also contributed to their decision.
Gold East Paper was established in 1997 as a greenfield mill and currently became one of the largest manufacturers of art paper worldwide. The mill compound is approximately six square kilometers, has three paper machines and two offline coating machines. It is located at Dagang, Zhenjiang City in the Jiangsu Province which is aside of Yangtze River, China’s largest river.
