Kaydon Filtration understands the special needs of paper manufacturers, and offers a complete selection of lube oil conditioning systems that can help protect every piece of your vital equipment. Particles and water can easily contaminate lube oils in paper machines. When contaminated, bearing friction increases and bearing surface wear multiplies. Contaminated paper machine oil is less efficient at reducing friction between bearing metal surfaces, causing heat buildup. Contamination will infiltrate and affect all bearing lube points on a paper machine. When contaminated oil moves through a paper machine circulating lube oil system, the contamination presents a threat to lube system components and functionality.

Kaydon Filtration provides solutions to oil contamination in paper machine lube systems with Kaydon Filtration 858 Vacuum Distillation Dehydration Oil Conditioning Systems. This selection guideline table shows 858 system recommendations for your paper machine lube oil contamination control application.
