Domtar Paper in Dryden, Ontario needed a better solution for their Andritz MC150 pump. This Andritz pump is stationed in the coating kitchen and is instrumental in the process of making high end paper products. For this particular application, this pump moves a medium consistency fluid in coating line process which produces the specialty higher gloss magazine stock. The problem they were having was both egress of bearing lubrication and ingress of contamination into the bearing housing.
In 2016, a representative from John Crane, in Stoney Creek proposed Isomag bearing isolators to the mill for their Andritz MC150 pump. They were very happy with their decision; The Andritz pump has been running leak free and contamination free since then.
