These Vooner case studies show how the high quality of VPM equipment has reduced costs of fabric conditioning for paper mills in over 40 countries. Uhle or vacuum boxes are constructed with extra internal support members for extra rigidity for very straight boxes to easily support ceramic wear strips.
In today’s world of the surviving mills reducing costs to improve earnings, mills are coming to VPM for cost improvement projects.
Orifice testing of vacuum pumps will show loss of airflow from old pumps. Evaluations of costs are reported to assist in deciding whether to do nothing, repair, or replace worn vacuum pumps.
