In tissue machines and in some paper and paperboard machines there is an M.G. cylinder. These M.G. cylinders are used to give the paper a single-sided smooth and shiny surface, or to ensure the drying process for tissue paper. What is special about the M.G. cylinder is its diameter of up to 6 m. Similar to the drying cylinders, the gear unit is attached to the cylinder pin as a shaft-mounted gear unit. As with the drying cylinders, steam is led through this cylinder pin into the M.G. cylinder.
Just as throughout the field of paper machinery, Flender gear units for pulp and paper have proven themselves for decades. Flender gear units for smoothers and cylinders of type GHZP/GHDP for M.G. cylinders can be ordered in the following designs:
With one or two input shafts
With or without Sunday drive
Two- or three-stage with transmission ratios from 6 to 100
With hollow shaft inside diameters up to 550 mm
FLENDER gear units for M.G. cylinders are suitable for output torques from 14,000 to 160,000 Nm.
