The pulp and paper industry is one of the many sectors that benefits from Rapid Gear’s 40-plus years of expertise. The Kitchener, Ont.-based company specializes in the rebuilding, maintenance and replacement of gearboxes for many sectors, including the pulp and paper industry.
The pulp and paper sector poses many challenges for equipment and components operating within it, including gears, gearboxes, seals and more. For example, it is a wet environment with high humidity, which is known to corrode metals and contaminate lubricants. In addition, equipment is also exposed to high ambient temperatures, which breaks down lubricants and seals, and reduces bearing life.
Due to these challenges, it is important to use equipment and components that can reliably operate in these environments, and regularly maintain these items to ensure they’re always working to the best of their abilities.
Rapid Gear can help. When it comes to the pulp and paper sector, the company offers superior service in a number of areas. It can replace leaking seals, as well as input cartridge bearings and seals. Rapid Gear’s expert team can also repair or replace gearboxes, and offers onsite inspection of gearing for its customers’ convenience.
