The induction heating is a procedure of heating of the electroconductive object (metal) by means of electromagnetic induction where the eddy currents are generated in a metal and the resistance cases the Joule heat that heats the metal.
During mounting of small rolling element bearings the induction heater BALTECH HI-1610 is widely used and for large bearings we recommend using the induction heater BALTECH HI-1650. You may ask why you need to use the induction heating instead of conventional oil bathes. The oil baths are not safe and can lead to the bearing contamination and as a result to its premature failure, while the induction heating allows avoiding such situations, it is a safe and high- performance. During the heating the bearing is not damaged, not contaminated and preserved its characteristics.
It should be also noted that the conventional heating can emit harmful smoke and smell which is hazard to maintenance personnel health and environment.
Undoubtedly one of the main advantages of the induction heating is the opportunity to perform heating of bearings, gears and other ring parts up to the defined temperature.
The induction heaters are the best heating solution.
However, according to the experience, these simple requirements are observed not always which leads to negative consequences: expensive equipment fails and companies bear huge losses due to unsheduled breakdown.
