Home Markets Industrial Thordon Pulp and paper


Rotating equipment used in pulp and paper processing must function reliably under a variety of extreme operating conditions. From tree harvesting, to wood processing, to the pulping process and finally in the paper mill itself, the equipment used must withstand shock combined with high and often unbalanced loading while processing product that is wet, abrasive and often contains process chemicals.

Thordon bearings and bushings, as well as Thor-Flex wear pads and structural wear components, offer solutions proven to dramatically increase Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF).

Maintenance costs and related down time can be significantly reduced compared to the conventional products currently in use.

Key Benefits:

  • Eliminate grease and associated maintenance costs
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Improved vibration/shock absorption
  • Improved reliability-reduced downtime costs
  • Low operating friction
  • Easily machined and installed
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Reduced noise
  • Accommodates edge loading
