Small induction heater

High heating capacity of up to 40 kg bearing

Portable Induction Heater TIH 030m
The SKF small induction heater TIH 030m combines high heating capacity with portability. The compact lightweight design makes the TIH 030m portable. Placing the induction coil outside the heater's housing allows the heating of bearings weighing up to 40 kg (88 lb). The induction heater is equipped with thermal overheating protection to reduce the risk of damage to the induction coil and the electronics. In addition to temperature mode, the TIH 030m is equipped with a time mode for heating components other than bearings. The induction heating system is supplied standard with three yokes and is available in two executions: 230V/50-60Hz and 100-110V/50-60Hz.
