Lower costs thanks to
optibelt RED POWER 3 S=C Plus
Bio-Pappel is the leading manufacturer and producer of sustainable packaging, newsprint paper and fine papers in Mexico and Latin America. Previously, the vacuum pumps used in the company’s paper mills had caused ongoing problems due to the standard belts wearing out after eight to ten months. This led Bio-Pappel to switch to
optibelt RED POWER 3 S=C Plus maintenance-free, high performance wedge belts, which delivered a service life of at least 24 months. As a result of this switch, the company now makes an annual saving of around 6,000 US dollars.
Perfect service from Optibelt
The Canadian company Domtar specialises in the production of pulp and paper and had been plagued by problems with a powerful grinding mill used for grinding waste wood. The belts, made by another manufacturer, were slipping and causing damage to the bearings of the mill on a regular basis. Optibelt therefore designed a completely new drive solution for Domtar with four optibelt BLUE POWER High-performance wedge belts and also adjusted the system precisely with the optibelt TT OPTICAL frequency measuring device. The mill now runs smoothly with no breakdowns.
