The SKF Adapter sleeve – Tool and accessory selector is used to select the correct tools and accessories when mounting SKF spherical roller and CARB toroidal roller bearings on adapter sleeves.
The selector can save considerable time in selecting the required tools and accessories as all the information is in one place. Furthermore, the selected items can be viewed on skf.com by just clicking on "more info".
The selector can be used for bearings mounted in conjunction with feeler gauges or with the SKF Drive-up Method. The preferred adapter sleeve according to the Rolling Bearing catalogue is shown as a default value, but other sleeves can also be chosen.
By simply selecting the combination of a bearing and sleeve, the program selects the correct tools and accessories to enable the bearing to be mounted and dismounted including:
- HMV hydraulic nut
- Pump options for the HMV nut, both for feeler gauge and SKF Drive-up Method
- Pump options for mounting using the oil injection method
- Required extension pipes to enable the use of the SKF Oil Injection Method
- Feeler gauge type
- Lock nut and washer
- Spanner type to tighten locking device
In addition, the program can generate a PDF showing the required tools and accessories, as well as a plain text script that can be copied and pasted into an e-mail, for example.
