SCA Packaging Obbola employs SPM Intellinova Parallel EN CMS
Swedish pulp and kraft linerboard mill SCA Packaging Obbola is now investing in its first two on-line Intellinova Parallel EN systems.
Sweden’s SPM Instrument AB, says its Intellinova Parallel EN is a high-performance on-line condition monitoring system (CMS) with 16 channels each with parallel and synchronous measurement capacity channels. The system offers functionality and flexibility to suit different measurement configurations. The SCA purchase includes 32 DuoTech accelerometers, which combine vibration and shock pulse measurement in the same sensor using the two patented HD ENV and SPM HD technologies.
The on-line systems will monitor the mechanical condition of a wash press and a wash filter, both of which are lowspeed applications. For four of the bearings in the wash filter, the rotational speed is as low as 2 rpm. Measurement data are analyzed in the comprehensive Condmaster Ruby 2018 software, which offers a wealth of practical analysis and diagnostic features.
Other versions of the Intellinova online system have been in use for several years at Obbola, including a wash press in the digester plant, as well as on the wire, press and dryer sections of the linerboard machine.
The Obbola mill manufactures highquality surface coatings (kraftliner) for corrugated board for use in consumer and transport packaging. The raw material consists mainly of virgin fiber. The products are suitable for demanding applications such as food, heavy goods and long-term products. The production capacity is 450,000 tonne/year of packaging paper.
