International Paper, in Grande Prairie, Alberta found Isomag bearing isolators to be the perfect solution for their outlet device on their Kamyr digester. Outlet devices are a part of the digester machinery process in paper mills which move the pulp from the steaming vats into the rest of the machine for further processing. Outlet devices have high end production requirements, capacities, and absolutely need a low maintenance frequency. When the pulp and paper outlet device parts are slowed down, their repair can be costly and time consuming.
When International Paper specified Isomag bearing isolators for their gearbox, low maintenance frequency was of the upmost importance. Isomag bearing isolators were equipped on the outlet device, which is driven by a Falk 2135YBX , and needed to stop the egress of black liquor and water from the outlet device. They were very happy with their decision. The Falk gearbox and the outlet device have been running leak free and contamination free since then. Isomag bearing isolators are a positive seal that wont damage the shafts of your equipment, and work in horizontal or vertical up or down positions
