A good dryer cylinder casting requires good alloys and exacting quality control procedures throughout the molding and casting process.

Precision Machining

Each cast dryer cylinder is precision bored and ground to ensure uniform wall thickness and concentricity. The cylinder is then NDT tested to ensure shell integrity.

dryer heads

Dryer Heads

Dryer heads are cast, precision machined and assembled to the machined shell. We also supply replacement dryer heads for all other OEM dryer cylinders including Black Clawson, Rice Barton, GL&V, Beloit, Valmet and Voith.

Steel Dryers

Steel paper machine dryers are equivalent to cast iron dryers in construction integrity, maximum pressures, and cost. They have advantages in weight and uniform heat transfer. Contact us to discuss steel dryers and/or receive a quote.
