LUBRICATION AT A BOARD MILL IN SOUTH AFRICA

LUBRICATION AT A BOARD MILL IN SOUTH AFRICA The South African Board Mill at Umgeni is situated about five miles from Durban, on the banks of the Umgeni river. It was formed by the Stafford Mayer group of companies in 1937, and manufacture of board from waste paper commenced in 1930. This was the first mill of its kind in South Africa, and as could be expected, various troubles were experienced at the beginning, until the arrival of skilled paper technicians from England. The board manufactured is cardboard ranging in thickness from .008 or .040 to .25 when laminated. The plant used is similar to that used for paper making. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial Lubrication and Tribology Emerald Publishing
