Pulp and paper

Vibration sensors improve machine reliability, so you can optimize productivity and minimize downtime

Every minute that your pulp and paper mill is down represents revenue loss. Maintenance and reliability engineers depend on vibration monitoring to identify mechanical problems early, keep machines running and plants operational.

For decades, Wilcoxon Research® vibration monitoring sensors have been used by maintenance experts to detect machinery problems, prevent damage, extend equipment life, provide early warnings and avoid costly repairs. Wilcoxon Research products have set the industry standard since 1960. We supply sensors for all types of rotating machines.
