Drying section

Performance in a high temperature environment

In the dryer section, the process of drying the paper web continues through the use of steam-heated cylinders. In modern machines, the dryer section is encased in a dryer hood. Here, the ambient temperature is higher, which affects the bearings. Selecting appropriate bearings for the operating environment can help avoid unplanned stops.

Additionally, the difficulty in performing maintenance and the importance of safety raise the demands for longer bearing service life.
