A New Resource for R&M Professionals

Larry Montague,
TAPPI president and CEO

For more than a decade, TAPPI has partnered
with IDCON to provide its members with valuable
information about reliability and maintenance issues in
the pulp and paper industry. That's why it's exciting to
finally be inaugurating this new section in Paper360°,
TAPPI's official member magazine.
I think a humming paper machine-whether it's running tissue, kraft, liner, or a specialty grade-is a thing
of beauty. It reflects the work of thousands of men and
women designing, testing, delivering, and operating
each component technology, from the smallest bearing
to the largest supercalender and everything in between.
Yet in spite of this wide range, each component has this
in common: it MUST be kept in top working condition,
or the entire system suffers. Because that's true, we've
seen incredible strides made in the science of reliability
and maintenance throughout the past decades.
That's where IDCON comes in. Their reliability and
maintenance experience and philosophy is a great fit
for our industry, and their audit and benchmarking

strategies have a proven track record. We've heard for
years that TAPPI members and Paper360° readers
want specialized R&M information they can really use
in their mills-and it makes sense for TAPPI to turn
to the experts to provide it. I feel it offers members
and readers a real advantage to have this information
delivered straight to their desktops (both genuine and
virtual!) in these pages.
And we're not stopping here. TAPPI and IDCON will
be expanding this partnership to also deliver a dedicated R&M website with valuable additional content,
a free newsletter, online communities (Connect and
LinkedIn groups), events, and more.
So keep those machines humming-and let us know
what you'd like to see in these R&M pages. We'd love
to hear from you!
Best regards,
Larry N. Montague
TAPPI President and CEO

Reliability Interview:

Steven Mjoen, Catalyst Paper
In this series of short interviews, we connect with R&M professionals in our industry
who share ideas and experiences. If you would like to be interviewed (or you'd like to
suggest a colleague or customer), contact Tor Idhammar at t.idhammar@idcon.com.

Steven Mjoen,
Catalyst Paper

Where you work: I work for Catalyst Paper, Crofton
division, which is located on southern Vancouver Island
near Duncan, BC. We are an integrated paper and pulp
manufacturing division with two operating paper
machines and two pulp machines.
What you really do: In my role as reliability manager, I am responsible for the lubrication mechanics,
vibration analysts, rebuild shop, and machine shop. In
addition, I have been acting as interim maintenance
manager for the past few months and am also the
champion of the Reliability Revitalization initiative
for our plant.
That's an unusual last name: It's Norwegian-I
even speak a little.
Hobbies: Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest,
I spend as much time outdoors as possible-either on
the water or hiking in the mountains.

How good is your mill in reliability, on a scale
1-10 (10 being the best)? We are a large integrated pulp
and paper plant; we have some areas that are a 3, while
other areas are a 6. Hence, the reason for the Reliability
Revitalization initiative.
Biggest reliability issue(s) at the mill: Attrition and
the loss of the experience that we have come to rely on.
What activities are ongoing to improve reliability?
We are in the midst of a Reliability Revitalization, re-launching past best practices and introducing new best practices.
Biggest obstacles to achieving your goal: Competing
initiatives and a mindset that Reliability is a project instead
of a change in the way that we conduct business.
Biggest resources you have for achieving your
goal: We have overwhelming support by management
for freeing up individuals. This includes having brought
IDCON Inc. on board for the Reliability Revitalization.
