NSK TL Bearing

High temperature processing and manufacturing


environments, such as those in the dryer section, are
especially vulnerable to work stoppages due to inner ring
fractures. TL will significantly reduce this risk with superior
resistance to inner ring fractures while providing superior life
and excellent dimensional stability.

Inner ring crack

TL Long Life Test

Countermeasure

Temperature difference
between shaft and inner ring
interference increases
hoop stress of inner ring
enlarges

Increased hardness of raceway surface provides longer life when foreign debris
is present than that of other bearings.
Improved strength of inner ring
Selection of appropriate interference

Life test result

inner ring crack


Short bearing life

NSK has based its reputation on solving the most challenging


industrial problems in ways that exceed customers
expectations. Our innovative TL Series for the Dryer Section
carries this tradition forward by providing outstanding
performance under high temperature.

High temperature condition


viscosity of lubricant oil lowers

Steam is passed through the roll to heat it

105C

The journal expands faster than the bearing, making the fit tighter

85C

TL Dimensional Stability Under High Temperatures

Severe hoop stress on inner ring is repeated every time the machine is started
Inner ring fracture is a common problem
Tests show fracture resistance is higher than stress levels in other steels
Up to 50% higher than bainite steel
Up to 150% higher than through hardened steel
Dimensional Stability
Equal to or better than normal heat stabilized (S11) bearings
Fatigue Life
2 times carburized steel (contaminated lube test)
3.5 times bainite (contaminated lube test)

Dimensional stability under high temperatures is adopted


as a standard specification. (max. 200C)

NSK TL Inner Ring Tests


A special steel and heat treatment developed by NSK strengthens the inner ring
against increasing hoop stress caused by rising shaft temperatures.

Bearing failures on the drive side of the dryer roll had a paper mill urgently
looking for an upgrade. After contact with a distributor, NSK came in for inspection.
Upon inspection, NSK discovered that the use of a competitor's standard through
hardened bearing, used in a high heat application, caused cracking on the inner race.

NSKs Solution: TL
TL bearings increase inner-ring toughness using a special surface-hardening heat treatment. From
a metallurgical standpoint, the raceways are harder than conventional bearing steel but the core remains
soft, giving the bearings the shock resistance needed to prevent fracturing. The bearings were installed
on the drive side and proved to be a long-lasting solution.

Now during each scheduled shutdown, 6-8 bearings are being replaced in both PM8 and PM9 with NSK TL.
Another benefit cost. TL is an upgraded product without an upgraded price.

TL Out-Rolls the Competition Once Again!


A Wisconsin paper mill was having problems with their chilled iron roll bearings on their super calendar.
Their application is very similar to a dryer can, but turns at higher rpms. The competitors bearings were
failing on the rolls roughly every 3-4 months, costing the mill time and money.
When the competitor could not solve the problem, the mill called NSK. Through an in-depth analysis,
NSK determined that the bearings were experiencing thrust loading, causing inner ring cracking. NSK
recommended a few modifications to the housing and with the addition of our proprietary TL technology,
TL outlasted the competition with 18 months on the first roll. The mills problems were solved thanks
to NSKs exceptional product and experience in proper procedure.
