Philadelphia Gear

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 known 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 critical - and 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.
