Higher reliability in harsh conditionsA Yankee cylinder is a steam heated cylinder so operating conditions are harsh. High temperatures cause thermal expansion of the cylinder and high stresses in bearing inner rings.
While the conditions are similar to those of drying cylinders, the rotational speeds and ambient temperatures are usually somewhat lower. Solutions still need to accommodate misalignment and expansion.
