SKF offers induction heaters for large bearings

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

SKF has announced the introduction of the SKF Induction Heater TIH L33. The smallest in the TIH L series, this induction heater is said to be capable of heating large rolling bearings weighing up to 700kg and completes the product line between SKF’s TIH 220m and the TIH L44.

The TIH L33 features power electronics with electric current control to help regulate the temperature rate increase. Its two-step, power setting option of 50 and 100% is said to enable smaller bearings to be heated safely with lower power consumption. Also, the TIH L33 has thermal overheating protection to reduce the risk of damage to the induction coil and electronics. Designed for vertical or horizontal heating, the induction heaters feature automatic demagnetisation to reduce the risk of ferrous debris contamination.

The TIH L series of induction heaters is suitable for industries such as metals, mining, pulp and paper, construction, fluid machinery, industrial transmission, marine, wind and power generation. The heaters are available in voltage variations to suit most operating voltages. For heating solid components, SKF recommends the use of its TIH L MB series of induction heaters.
