Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice for pulp and paper companies. An effective oil analysis program will keep important manufacturing assets such as pumps, gears, bearings, compressors, engines, hydraulic systems and other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled downtime.

For pulp and paper companies the drying roll is at the heart of production and downtime can cost many thousands of dollars an hour for larger facilities. Consequently the oil-wetted machinery, in a paper rolling machine, consisting primarily of gears and bearings is of critical importance.
