SKF EAZ induction heaters

Quick dismounting of cylindrical roller bearings

Mounting and dismounting large bearings in rolling mills can be hazardous and time-consuming. SKF EAZ induction heaters are reliable tools for safe and quick dismounting and mounting of inner rings of large cylindrical roller bearings. Dismounting hardly takes more than three minutes, irrespective of ring size.

When dismounting the EAZ heats the inner rings evenly by inducing eddy currents while the roll neck remains cold. This helps prevent damage to shafts and inner rings, which often occurs when other methods such as heating with gas burners are used. Additional benefits include:
  • Reduced man-hours
  • Reduced downtime
  • Minimize risk of inner ring damage
  • Reduce spares inventory
