Drying cylinders

Overcome the challenges of a hot environment

The dryer section of a paper machine is tough on machine components. High temperatures and high stress during start-up means solutions need to accommodate misalignment and axial expansion. This is especially important when widths and speeds of paper making machines are increased.

Uneven distribution of condensate collected within the cylinder due to faulty siphons can produce unbalanced loading.
