Pulp & Paper / Fiberboard

The paper, pulp, and fiberboard industries present compound wear challenges: not only is material being impact at high speeds, the material itself is highly abrasive, and it’s mixed in with corrosive additives.

We have developed solutions for costly maintenance problems that plague paper, pulp, and fiberboard plant managers.

For the last fifteen years, we have been repairing, rebuilding, and improving critical paper, pulp, & fiberboard plant machinery including fans, blowers, mixing/blending teeth and shafts, impellers, and more.

Our machining capabilities allow us to not only build and coat components- we use state of the art balancing technology to dynamically balance them as well.

A severely worn fan we reverse-engineered and rebuilt for a client. The original design allowed an unacceptable amount of blade flexion, which over time leads to stress cracking. We rebuilt the fan incorporating design modifications that improved wear resistance and rigidity.
Fiberboard blender shafts and teeth suffer extensive damage. We have repaired multiple shafts like this one by replacing worn tool receivers, removing and re-applying new coatings, repairing bearing and seal surfaces, and performing dynamic balancing.
