PAPER INDUSTRY - Pulper

The challenge

  • Description of the application: Pulper for paper industry
  • Former type of transmission: Sets of v‐belts
  • Type of users: Paper industries
  • Complaints: Maintenance / Short lifespan

Problems & Consequences

  • Settling and maintenance operations: Set of V‐belts drive requires precise and equal tension level in all belts. Several hours of loss of production and important maintenance costs to retension the belts.
  • Breakage: Non equal tension of the V belts can generate a short lifespan of the V-belts.

Solution & Benefits

HUTCHINSON SOLUTION: POLY V® PM –aramidcord

  • No Maintenance: Maintenance operations are not requested anymore during the total lifespan of the belt.
  • Increased Lifespan: A single belt with mono structure and homogeneous tension ensure an extended lifespan of the belt.
  • Compact drive: Poly V® belt enables to reduce the pulleys diameters and the belt's width. Acquisition costs are also reduced.
