Pulp and Paper

Pulp and paper production calls for a wide range of technologies and components. Each one is another part of the process, and they will eventually need repairs or replacement. At Chalmers & Kubeck, we’re proud to be a one-stop shop that can take on just about any industrial repair. Big or small, emergency or on-site, we can handle it. Make sure your pulp and paper manufacturing facility is ready for whatever comes its way with C&K products and services.

What We Do

When it comes to pulp and paper manufacturing, C&K offers a complete range of services.

Gearbox Overhauls and Gear Manufacturing

A working gearbox is crucial to the operation of many important components, like hydropulpers or debarkers. We can completely rework your gearbox and reverse engineer obsolete components to better meet your facility’s evolving needs.

We can also manufacture precision ground gears in helical, double helical, internal and external spur gears. Our gear manufacturing for pulp and paper companies adheres to strict standards and features in-house no-load spin testing and dynamic balancing up to 5,000 pounds. We can reverse engineer gears for your application with thru-hardened, carburized, and induction-hardened materials. Services include emergency and on-site support and service factor upgrades.

Rotating Equipment and Pump Repairs

Rotating equipment plays a big role in paper and pulp work, and C&K is your source for many types of repairs, including:

  • Centrifuges
  • Agitators
  • Mixers
  • Vacuum pumps
  • Yankee driers

We also conduct repairs and maintenance on pumps, like boiler feedwater and deepwell pumps.

Thermal Spray

Thermal spray is a great way to extend the life of components and keep wear, corrosion, and erosion in check. It’s also great for dimensional restoration. We conduct versatile thermal spray services with different coatings, which are great for calendar roll restoration and finish grinding applications. 

On-Site Machining Services

On-site machining services for pulp and paper companies are often necessary for large equipment. We can come to you and conduct services like laser alignment or machining, milling and shimming bases for motors, pumps, and gearboxes.

Borescope Inspections

Borescopes help us get into the nooks and crannies of your systems for comprehensive inspections and care.

Safety Valve Sales, Maintenance, and Repair

We sell and service safety valves for pulp and paper companies in our extensive inventory of over 15 million products.
