Are Paper Machine Bearings Giving You a Headache? Learn New Solutions for Challenging Conditions and Repair Options

TAPPI’s Papermaking Technology and Operations Committee (PTOC) is organizing a new informational webinar focused on how paper machines present challenging operational and environmental conditions for rolling element bearings. Large paper web widths, wide spans, and high speeds require high precision bearings that can accommodate misalignment. The high moisture content in the environment of the wet end section and the high operating temperatures and rapid heating in the dryer section place stringent requirements on bearing designs, seals, and lubrication requirements.

Attend this one-hour webinar and learn how to recognize the modes of bearing damage in paper industry application, how to relate possible bearing solutions to challenging application conditions in paper machines, and how to assess the benefits of a comprehensive bearing reconditioning program for your facility.
