ContiRoll® Service Package 04
Overhaul of cylinders

For a safe plant

To guarantee continuous production and safety of the plant, it is necessary to regularly perform inspections and overhaul all cylinders of a ContiRoll® press. Worn seals lead to the loss of hydraulic oil and pose a serious threat to the plant. At particular risk are the infeed cylinders in the area of frames 1 to 5, because this is where the temperature and pressure are greatest.

The cylinders

Non-performance of maintenance

The consequences:

  • Increased oil consumption
  • High fire risk
  • Dirt may get into the oil, thus contaminating it and blocking the valves
