Minimal friction when shaking
The FloatBearing hydrodynamic bearing reduces the friction between the metallic surfaces of a shaking unit even at low machine speeds thereby minimizing wear.
The newly developed FloatBearing is the ideal solution for optimally utilizing the performance of the DuoShake. The FloatBearing absorbs the radial loads (wire tension, roll weight) while at the same time allowing free axial movement of the breast roll when shaking. Even with a short-term stoppage of the oil hydraulic system and associated stoppage of the bearing’s oil supply, limited further operation of the bearing without damage is ensured by a specifically developed and patented emergency lubrication system.
