The proper installation of roller- and ball-bearings is vital if they are to function satisfactorily, and their life is to meet expectations. Installing these bearings at the same temperature as their housing, using traditional mechanical means such as hammers and hydraulic presses places lateral loads on the races that they were not designed to bear, and risks damaging them. PRUFTECHNIK’s EDDYTHERM range of bearing heaters work by subjecting the bearing to a coil-generated induction field. No physical contact takes place between the heater and the bearing, so the risk of damage is eliminated.
