Hydraulic and Pneumatic conducted an in depth root cause analysis of the Kamyr Hydraulic Continuous Diffuser Washer that is operated at Australian Paper Maryvale Plant in December of 2010. The machine had a design capacity of 450ADLT/24 hours, with a hydraulic system that although still functional presented several major issues relative to both the operational ability in higher production demand (750ADLT/24 hours at the time) and a proposed potential increase to 840ADLT/24 hours.
