In forest industry facilities, there are several process areas, such as pulp drying machine (pulp), wet area (paper), and drying zones (sawmill), where electric motors operate in humid conditions, leading to regular electric motor failures.
In many industrial facilities, there are pumping stations that can be located underground, in damp caves, or even outdoors. These pumps are often powered by electric motors, and replacing them can be laborious and their availability is crucial for the production process.
Rolling mills, concentration plants, and conveyors
Many process plants, such as rolling mills and concentration plants, have humid process areas that house hundreds or even thousands of electric motors. Additionally, many conveyors operate irregularly outdoors, exposing their electric motors to moisture and rapid temperature changes.
