Yankee press rolls

Handling high temperatures and high speeds

In a Yankee press roll, bearings operate in a hot environment at relatively high speeds. The gap between the cylinder and the press roll needs to remain constant to ensure an accurate press nip and good quality paper. For large bearings that run fast, high running accuracy is critical or vibrations may affect paper quality.

In addition, Yankee press rolls are subject to misalignment and axial expansion of the shaft, and the bearings must accommodate this.
