OVERVIEW:

EFFICIENCY

When a conversion process is mandatory, it can only be improved by increasing efficiency. We helped our paper mill customer’s transition from their existing hard plumbed lines connected with JIC hose ends and adaptors to multi-coupling plates and the VEP series for leak-free connection and efficiency.

CHALLENGE:

IMPROVE EFFICIENCY OF MANDATORY CHANGEOVERS

A paper mills’ heated embedding rolls require changing out 6-7 times per month, at a cost of 9 man hours for each changeover.

SOLUTION:

VEP SERIES THREADED FLAT FACE COUPLERS

The VEP series quick disconnect couplers provided faster, more efficient changeovers. The couplers can connect with residual pressure if proper bleeding of the system does not occur and provide a safe connection for operators.

RESULTS:

REDUCED MAN HOURS AND STREAMLINED CONVERSION

They have saved an estimated 60-70 man hours per month since implementing the quick disconnects and streamlining conversion.
