Suction rolls

High performance at high speeds

Used for dewatering the web, the operating conditions for suction rolls often place high demands on machine components. These rolls are subject to misalignment and axial expansion of the shaft, which the bearings must accommodate.

In addition, suction rolls have the high speed demands. As production capacity is pushed further and further, speed requirements are likely to increase even more in the future.

SKF can help with solutions that reduce friction and increase reliability.
