Paper, Pulp & Converting

Important Considerations

This is the industry we cut our teeth on and few material handling system designers can match the breadth and depth of our industry experience. With experience servicing all negative WetVac systems, we also bring some of the most innovative, energy-saving solutions to paper manufacturing markets.

Our ingenious solutions in this market include pneumatic conveying of recyclable edge cuttings, web dust handling and air handling of a variety of different paper related materials, including foils and printing papers. We have developed ways to improve web quality by picking up slitter dust at the nip point.

Compass can also double the width of parent rolls handled by our pneumatic trim system, eliminating butt rolls in the process.  

We have also developed the innovative Ellis Coil Separator to more easily separate and handle heavy cut-to-size rolls of paper, foils, metals and woven products.

Related Case Study



Developing innovative solutions in this market often means transporting materials over long distances, as well as mastering the use of sophisticated controls.   Both are Compass strengths.  Our slitter dust solution is an especially innovative way to capture dust at the nip point and remove it from the web surface without damage, improving web quality in the process.

In addition, this is a tight-margin market, placing an emphasis on efficiency and energy-saving operation.  We have developed a number of design and component innovations that help Compass point the right direction in the Pulp and Paper industry.  All of our designs use the fewest number of moving parts possible to reduce both downtime and maintenance costs. 



Through years of involvement in the paper industry, weve developed a number of high-efficiency components that are fabricated in our Ohio plant.  We also have forged relationships with key suppliers of fans, conveyors and other component parts.  Our extensive custom fabrication capabilities are used to create highly robust systems noted for their reliability and easy maintenance.  Sophisticated controls ensure adequate monitoring and efficient operation throughout the life of the system. 



From soil tests through actual construction, Compass takes control.  We have supervised and built material handling facilities worldwide.
