The Kamyr K5 thick stock pump is a popular heavy duty paper stock & slurry pump found in paper mills around the world. This thick stock pump is most commonly found in low pressure paper stock and large volume slurry applications. These pumps have proven to be robust and reliable in paper mills around the country. Howe Sound Pulp and Paper in Port Mellon, British Columbia, experienced issues of water entering the bearing housing of their Kamyr K5, and needed to find a solution to keep out this water.
When contacting Isomag, Howe Sound Pulp and Paper requested a solution that would keep water out and last for a long period of time to meet their MTBF goals. Isomag bearing isolators are a positive seal that keeps external contaminates out, and holds in the lubrication, keeping it clean and pristine. Since incorporating Isomag bearing isolators in 2012, Howe Sound Pulp and Paper has reported zero issues with contamination, and the Clove Rotor 1200 pump has been running fantastic.
