Support Rolls & Base Systems

Bases and Rollers


Your rotary equipment has multiple rolling surfaces which require proper support and pin point accurate adjustments. Issues with support base structures or its mechanical components may cause excessive wear throughout the unit. Industrial Kiln & Dryer® has the capacity to design, repair and retrofit any support base configuration as well as provide grinding, replacement and installation of new or used support rollers/trunnions.

Common Issues:

  • Environment ruined foundation
  • Poor structural design
  • Signs of pitting, spalling and cracks
  • Abnormal wear patterns on support rollers/trunnions
  • Wobbling or poor contact between tire and support rollers/trunnions
  • Hot bearings caused by high thrust loads
  • Rollover (mushroom) edges on tire and support rollers/trunnions
