One very commonly asked question is, “What if the dryer cylinders have no grooves for rope?”

This is very common scenario especially in old machines. However, we have a solution to it. H & T provides separate grooved rings as an answer to this situation. The grooved ring diameter is approximately the same size as cylinder diameter and can easily be mounted over the dryer cylinder face. The width of ring may vary from 50mm and above. For Mild Steel Cylinders the ring is directly welded to the face of the cylinder. For Cast Iron cylinders the ring is mounted to the face of the cylinder through bolts and mounting blocks provided with ring.

The only constraint associated with such installation is the space required between the dryer face and the machine frame should be 15mm greater than the grooved ring width recommended.
