Bowed Rolls - Some Quick Facts
By the Numbers:
A.How many bearings in a Bowed Roll?
    Take the diameter of the roll in inches and subtract one and the fraction
    and divide it into the face length (part with the sleeve) of the roll. Bowed
    Rolls for the Paper mill come in diameters of 5 1/8", 6 1/4", 7 1/8", 10 1/2"
    and 13 1/4".
    Example: a 7 1/8" diameter roll with a 200" face will have about 33 
    bearings. (200/6). 
B.Repair/recover cost comparison?
