ABB Ability™ Asset Condition Monitoring for pulp and paper

Digital application helps evaluate a pulp and paper mill's precise maintenance needs by pulling together previously disparate data about various production equipment's condition.

ABB Ability Asset Condition Monitoring is a software solution that offers operations, automation and maintenance personnel a complete overview of their production assets’ condition, helping to increase process efficiency, avoid unnecessary maintenance, reduce exposure to hazardous areas and improve time to repair.

Thousands of production assets are in your mill: valves, switches, sensors, motors, switchgears, gearboxes etc. Many have embedded tools to collect and store asset condition data, with high potential to reduce maintenance costs, improve equipment reliability and reduce unplanned shut-downs, but do you get the most out of these valuable inputs?

Developed by maintenance and industry experts, this application is scalable and maintenance-oriented, offering a library of asset monitors. Users can apply condition monitoring to whichever area they wish to focus, be it automation, instrumentation, electrical, mechanical or process equipment. This suite of monitors is compiled so that a user can start with a small scope covering only the most common components initially and then, in line with growing business demands, scale up to assess more complex, high-value added equipment and components.

Along with the dashboards for customer self-service, ABB offers collaborative digital services based on the asset condition data analysis - ABB Ability™ Predictive Maintenance for pulp and paper. It can be delivered via ABB Ability™ Collaborative Operations and bundled with other services and technologies into a tailored Pulp and Paper Care Agreement.
