HEIDENHEIM, Germany , August 18, 2011 (press release) – For their mill in Dagang, China, Gold East Paper decided in favor of the advanced OnV ConditionMonitoring 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.
