Innovated bearings for the beater wheel mill of a thermal power plant

ZKL GROUP as a traditional supplier of rolling bearings for power plants also participates in modernization of existing thermal power plants. The introduction of modern combustion systems allows to reduce the emissions of solid pollutants, NOx and SO2 to half of the original value.

An example of this is the supply of the upgraded bearings 24180EW33MH TPF 11601-21 and 22264EW33MH TPF 11601-21 for the beater wheel mill of a lignite-fired power plant. The beater wheel mill grinds the fuel to the required fineness and evaporates excess moisture from the fuel, while also ensuring the coal-air mixture is drawn into the combustion chamber.

The bearings must withstand the harsh conditions at the limiting operating speeds, loaded both by external loads and by the mill wheel's unbalance. Thanks to ZKL's development base and new production technologies, it was possible to innovate the product in the required time according to all customer requirements.




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