As one of Emerson's beta test sites, Kimberly Clark's Loudon, TN paper mill was one of the first plants to test-drive the recently released CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer. After several weeks of using the new portable vibration analyzer, the plant reported faster completion of their normal maintenance routes, easier and quicker data analysis, and an overall more comfortable experience working with the unit in the field.

Knowing that real-world applications validate the results users will achieve with the analyzer, Emerson had multiple facilities, including Kimberly Clark, that generously invested their time and experience in the beta test process.

Real-World Results

"It's very quick, especially with slow speed equipment," said Dennis Keaton, maintenance mechanic at the Loudon paper mill. "We run 1,200 to 1,300 points per week, so the speed of setting up and taking readings is very important."

An integrated analysis tool provides the complete picture of asset reliability. With the CSI 2140, vibration tools coexist with balancing, temperature, trends, and motor diagnostic tools. In addition, four-channel vibration analysis capabilities deliver insight into operating conditions in order to correctly diagnose complex machinery problems.

Embedded intelligence guided Kimberly Clark technicians through testing and analytics. Even less experienced technicians could confidently monitor and diagnose equipment issues with minimal training.

In addition, the human-centered approach to the design of the CSI 2140 made an immediate impact. At Kimberly Clark, with approximately 8,400 measurements per month, the smaller size of the analyzer made routes more comfortable. Measurements in the dark areas of the mill were much easier with the brighter screen.

"Our users realize they need to continuously improve their reliability processes in order to remain competitive and profitable," said Nathan Pettus, vice president of Emerson's Machinery Health Management business. "What has made them successful in the past may not be competitive today. Users like Kimberly Clark have applied integrated analysis to develop a clearer picture of equipment condition, translating into a strategic advantage in the market."
