ZKL bearings for paper industry

ZKL Group offers its special and large-size bearings for entire range of applications all over the world. One of the latest projects in Russia which was successfully implemented with ZKL bearings was vacuum drum filter. This machine is a key technology in pulp and paper industry. It is a static application where drum rotates at speeds 3 – 4 rpm. During one revolution, pulp is filtrated through filter cloth, solid particles form a cake which is washed, dried and then discharged from the drum. This is repeated revolution by revolution. The drum in this particular project is fitted with axially free one-row cylindrical roller bearing PLC 31-16-03 and axially fixed spherical roller bearing 248/750EW20MH.


ZKL is the biggest manufacturer of large-scale spherical-roller, special and split bearings in Central Europe.
