Multi-core induction heaters

A flexible heating solution for very large bearings and workpieces

Multi-core Induction Heaters TIH MC series
The patent pending, SKF Multi-core Induction Heaters TIH MC series are energy efficient custom-made heating solutions, that can save heating time and potentially reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Flexible design, consisting of a number of induction heating cores and coils controlled by a single control and power cabinet
  • Suitable for heating large thin section workpieces, such as railway tyres
  • Depending on workpiece, heating capacities of several tonnes can be realised
  • For components sensitive to uneven induction heating, they allow for a more even temperature gradient across the whole circumference
  • Ergonomically designed sliding yoke, for larger TIH MC series, reduces lifting time
  • Remote control panel, detachable from the power cabinet, helps improve ease of use and user safety
  • Temperature mode allows the desired heating temperature to be specified, helping prevent component overheating
  • Time mode for heating components other than bearings, allows flexibility in application
  • Automatic demagnetisation at the end of heating cycle helps reduce the risk of ferrous contamination of the bearing
  • Unique design allows for custom-made solutions to be quickly and economically produced

The type of TIH MC series heater required depends on the application. Based on your application details, SKF can configure a solution to meet your needs. To select the right solution, we need application information such as:

Bearings to be heated:

  • Bearing designation
  • If new bearing: main dimension and weight (kg)
  • Required temperature (˚C)
  • Mounting frequency (once a day / week / month)

Heater data:
  • Power supply available (V, A and Hz)
  • Present or considered heating method (oven, oil bath, ...)

Workpiece other than bearing, e.g. housing, gear, bushing, etc.:
  • Drawing of workpiece with dimensions (mm)
  • Weight (kg)
  • Material of workpiece (steel, cast iron, etc.)
  • Required temperature (˚C)
  • Mounting frequency (once a day / week / month)

For more information on the suitability of SKF TIH MC series heaters for your application or for a quotation, contact you local authorised SKF distributor or SKF office.
