SKF TIH 030m induction heaters
Making heat mounting easier for bearings
The bigger the bearing, the bigger the force needed to mount it. To compensate, induction heating has been a worldwide best practice for many bearing-mounting operations, notably cylindrical shafts and bearings that cannot be pressed easily onto a shaft or into a housing.
If heating is uneven, or if overheating occurs, the bearing could be altered metallurgically and dimensionally, possibly shortening the bearing service life. The SKF Induction Heater TIH 030m can help. This proven unit delivers reliable, efficient heat according to pre-set, time-controlled levels.
Heat bearings safely
Featuring advanced power electronics, the SKF induction heater TIH 030m can heat bearings up to 40 kg (88 lbs).
SKF TIH series induction coils are positioned outside the heater's housing, enabling the bearing to be placed around the heater. It's a significant innovation that helps reduce heating time and power consumption. Using SKF TIH induction heaters also reduces mounting time and efforts and eliminates the risk of contamination often encountered when using oil baths.
