Induction Heaters Help Prevent Bearing Failure
Ludeca’s Eddytherm Portable and Eddytherm 2x allow precise setting of time and temperature to prevent premature bearing failures due to improper or overheating for installation. A magnetic temperature probe continuously measures and displays actual temperature, while a stand-by feature permits holding temperature at a pre-set level for an indefinite time. They automatically demagnetize bearings after heating and visual and audible signal announces termination of the heating/demagnetizing cycle.
The Eddytherm is designed for shrink-fitting of bearings for proper machine installation as well as heat sleeves, impellers, rings, couplings, crane wheels and gears. The Eddytherm 2x features a swivel arm and is suitable for bearings up to 176 pounds while the Eddytherm Portable is suitable for bearings up to 22 pounds.
