Excellent field performance
VISIEYE technology has proved very reliable in even the toughest conditions, as this example from Stora Enso in 2006 shows.
Following repeated web breaks at its Kemi Mill that its previous system failed to detect, Stora Enso decided to install four VISIEYE sensors to remedy the situation. Various locations were selected in the drying sections of PM2 and PM3, where web flutter is at its lowest, but where temperatures can go as high as 125 °C.
Following a phased implementation over the summer, the system has proved highly successful, detecting all breaks without a hitch. The physical installation has also proved a success, and the camera windows have not had to be cleaned once. Cooling is handled by vortec tube coolers and compressed air, and has kept internal temperatures within the units to around 40 °C.
