Case story

I have been working in the paper industry for several years in Indonesia. During this time, I have traveled across different areas in Indonesia and visited dozens of paper mills. It has been very exciting to see with my own eyes the extreme conditions, where the paper web monitoring cameras must perform optimally, to provide accurate images to mill operators, enabling them to enhance production line efficiency and recognize paper web defects accurately and on time.

Paper mills today require, that web monitoring cameras provide sharp high-resolution images at the highest machine speeds and requirements. As many of the web monitoring cameras are located in the forming and press section, it is critical to keep cameras and lights clean in harsh environment to deliver excellent images for improved troubleshooting and efficiency.

I thought it would be interesting to take before and after images with Procemex ProClean Pinhole Cameras, and see, how they perform and maintain the image quality in harsh paper mill conditions, six months after installation.

The installation consisted of multiple Procemex ProClean pinhole cameras that monitored different phases of the paper production. The pictures taken present really well, why so many mill operators insist on using Procemex ProClean Pinhole cameras instead of the traditional web monitoring cameras.

The picture on the left column shows the camera image taken on the installation day, and the picture on the right shows the image, that was taken with the same pinhole camera, six months after the installation date. When looking at these images, I am not surprised, why so many paper mills in Indonesia have shifted away from using traditional cameras to Procemex ProClean Pinhole
