Project: Repairs to kiln roller bearing


At the customer’s request, Sercem intervenes following a breakage of the bearing of the downstream south roller.

We dismantle and bring the complete bearing back to the workshop.

The roller is dismantled.

Some parts were remachined and we replaced the damaged parts.

We realize that the incident is due to a faulty kiln slope and that a 3 mm shimming under the bearing is necessary.

We reassemble the unit as soon as possible and the customer can start the kiln again.
