Pulp and paper

In continuous manufacturing process, like pulp and paper manufacturing, high level accuracy demands high level of reliability and maintenance predictability for machines and equipment.

As a very energy intensive business, the demands on energy efficiency are highly valued when considering new technologies. Interruptions in processes are expensive and all maintenance is planned carefully with tight schedules. Companies have invested in production quality and quantity for years to meet the needs and demands of their customers.

“High level accuracy and reliability are essential when interruptions in processes are expensive.”

Towards an energy efficient pulp and paper industry

The energy-efficient Tamturbo® Touch-Free technology with VSD saves energy and nature and does not need oil changes or produce oily waste. This helps companies reach their responsible and sustainable targets.

After many years with high-cost maintenance, fixing oil leaks, treatment of oily condensate water and recycling of waste oil, companies are looking to achieve substantial savings. Multiple pulp and paper mill companies have thoroughly analysed Tamturbo’s Touch-Free® technology, concluded the lowest life-cycle costs and taken Tamturbo® compressors into their compressed air production, replacing screw compressors.

Efficiency is a key factor in compressed air production

As a very energy intensive business, the demands on energy efficiency are highly valued when considering new technologies. The energy-efficient Tamturbo® Touch-Free technology saves energy and nature and does not need oil changes or produce oily waste. This helps companies reach their responsible and sustainable targets. Multiple pulp and paper mill companies have thoroughly analysed Tamturbo’s Touch-Free® technology, concluded the lowest life-cycle costs and taken Tamturbo® VSD compressors into their compressed air production, replacing screw compressors.

Savings in maintenance and energy consumption

High-quality and 100% oil-free compressed air is required for producing high-end paper and board products. After many years with high-cost maintenance, fixing oil leaks, treatment of oily condensate water and recycling of waste oil, companies are looking to achieve substantial savings. Tamturbo® Touch-Free compressors need virtually no maintenance – the intake air filters are the only part requiring replacement every few years. The remotely monitored compressor informs the operator of any maintenance needs well in advance.

Tamturbo® compressors satisfy the modern needs of the packaging industry

In the paper industry, renewable paper materials are a great way to save raw materials, but companies can also achieve their sustainability and circular economy goals by choosing sustainable and energy-efficient technology. Tamturbo’s variable speed compressors respond to the customer’s varied compressed air needs quickly and effectively. Our compressor has very high efficiency with over 50% turndown range.

Product quality and mill efficiency are key factors in choosing compressor technology. Customers want high quality on time, and factories need to have high utilization rates to keep ahead of the tough competition in the industry.

Tamturbo® Touch-Free™ technology not only saves time, money and nature, but also results in uninterrupted production.

Energy savings and sustainability with Tamturbo® technology

As a very energy intensive business, the demands on energy efficiency are highly valued when considering new technologies. The energy-efficient Tamturbo® Touch-Free technology saves energy and nature and does not need oil changes or produce oily waste. Customers want excellent products on time, and factories need to have high utilization rates to keep up with the tough competition in the industry. These requirements can be met with professional staff and high-quality technology. Multiple pulp and paper mill companies have thoroughly analysed our Touch-Free® technology, concluded the lowest life-cycle costs and taken our compressors into their compressed air production, replacing screw compressors.

Touch-Free technology helps minimize downtime

The Tamturbo® Touch-Free compressors use active magnetic bearings – the compressor’s rotating parts levitate in a magnetic field and do not come into contact with anything. Therefore, there are no wearing parts to replace or repair, and the compressor does not need any oil lubrication or oil changes or produce any oily waste. The intake air filters need to be replaced depending on actual clogging, but the remote monitoring will inform the operator of this and any other maintenance needs well in advance. This not only saves time, money and nature, but also results in uninterrupted production.

Tamturbo® Touch-Free™ compressor as a solution

In 2015 Powerflute agreed to test new technology for compressed air production to ensure PSA-oxygen generator’s uninterrupted performance. TT60 pilot unit was installed in February 2016. As a part of Tamturbo’s low pressure compressor product family, the TT60 offers an optimized solution for this oxygen generation application to achieve remarkable saving in energy costs and Life Cycle Costs.

It is most important for us that compressors are reliable and energy efficient and easy to maintain, i.e. they have low total cost of ownership.

Oil-free compressed air key player in oxygen generation

One of the key processes where the need for uninterrupted performance and minimizing the maintenance was PSA-oxygen generators continuous compressed

oxygen production. The key requirement is no oil contamination in the zeolite which is used for oxygen separation. The old solution was based on an oil-lubricated screw compressor which had challenges in Oxygen generation pre-filtration. The oil carries over from the compressor blocked the filters and deteriorated the oxygen generation productivity. Changing the filters was an alternative solution but an increased need for maintenance and the associated costs were unacceptable.

Peace of mind

Tamturbo® TT60 was an excellent solution for Powerflute. Completely oil-free compressor keeps the process going uninterrupted without risk of oil contamination blocking filters. Remote monitoring and inclusive sensoring informs how compressor is working and helps to schedule the maintenance. Literally only components that need regular maintenance are intake air filters and two seal kits. All maintenance procedures can be optimized with the production process without need for excessive interruptions. Tamturbo compressor has proved its efficiency – Powerflute gets substantial savings in electrical, service and maintenance bills, as well as in indirect costs.
