In the pulp & paper industry, operators need to be able to anticipate equipment failures for the various pieces of critical equipment used in paper mills or risk unexpected failures resulting in costly downtimes. One example of critical equipment used in paper mills is the fan pump. Fan pump operation is critical so that slurry continues to be supplied to the head box. These are generally 200 to 400 hp direct coupled machines which can be a hassle to replace during unplanned downtime.
Veros’ technology gives continuous real-time insights into machinery operational performance and equipment health of fan pumps as well as other electrically-driven equipment.
Veros provides measurements from electrical waveforms such as torque, efficiency, harmonic distortion and voltage imbalance to inform the user of changes in flow, efficiency and other operational parameters.
