Pulp & Paper

Philadelphia Gear advanced the U.S. paper industry with the development of a versatile, shaft mounted gear system for driving paper machine dryers, which became knows as "The Yankee Dryer" design. This system eliminates the inefficient and often maintenance-prone employment of chains and sprockets. Today, Philadelphia Gear's design experience and high engineering standards, coupled with the service capabilities of our technical experts, ensure that these highly-used, sometimes difficult to maintain machines stay available and run at high levels.


Philadelphia Gear continues to work to provide solutions to meet the diverse needs of the paper and pulp industry.
