Housings for paper machines, SBFN, SBPN and SDM series

With increasing demands placed on the output of paper machines, the operating conditions for housings, bearings and seals in this application are quite severe. Very high temperatures are typical and the risk of water contamination is always high. SKF provides housings for felt rolls, drying cylinders, and Yankee cylinders (used for producing tissue and board).
