Swedish paperboard mill Stora Enso Skoghall now changes the vibration monitoring system for its board machine KM8. SPM Instrument was appointed to deliver its online condition monitoring system Intellinova.
On its two board machines KM7 and KM8, the Skoghall mill produces carton-board aimed for consumer packagings and for printing purposes. KM7 has an annual production capacity of 300,000 tons, while KM8 with its capacity of 425,000 tons is one of the world´s largest board machines.
When Intellinova replaces the previous condition monitoring system, vibration measurement, lubrication condition and other measurement parameters will be integrated in the online system. Information on e.g. dynamic pressure and flow is transferred to the Condmaster Nova software via OPC. An extensive monitoring system from SPM is already installed on KM7, and with the installation of Intellinova on KM8, the two SPM online condition monitoring systems will monitor over 1400 measuring points at the Skoghall mill.
Mikael Lindfors, Manager of Business Solutions at SPM Instrument, comments: ”We are proud to once again be entrusted to deliver condition monitoring equipment to Stora Enso. The order is proof that we are doing the right things and that our products and services are of highest quality. We look forward to continue to build on our good relationship with Stora Enso Skoghall.”
Installation will be carried out during late summer and fall of 2009.
