SKF Oil Injection Method

Modify components and equipment for even easier mounting

SKF Oil Injection Method
Traditional mounting techniques for gears require heat and/or mechanical pressure. Both can slow maintenance procedures and pose risks to worker safety, equipment and reliability – particularly if gears have been mounted for a long time and are in need of maintenance. 

Patented by SKF in the 1940s, the SKF Oil injection method facilitates mounting and dismounting of gears and bearings. When applied to drivelines, it can dramatically simplify maintenance procedures and reduce dismounting time for gears and couplings.
