Low-Frequency Induction Heaters
Timken offers a large assortment of high-quality induction heaters designed for demanding industrial applications. They can heat and radially expand a wide variety of gears, rings, couplings, bearings and other components.
Induction heating is a superior, fast and controlled heating method. It is a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional heating methods such as ovens, oil baths or blow torches. These methods cause fumes or oil waste and are not recommended for personal health and safety.
- Produced in accordance with International (IEC) and European (CE) health and safety requirements
- Microprocessor controlled power supply
- Automated time and temperature control
- Automatic demagnetization
- Gear wheels
- Other components
Timken induction heaters use the principle of induction, similar to a transformer. The heater and yokes remain cool; only the work piece is heated. During the induction heating cycle, a certain degree of magnetism occurs. All Timken heaters demagnetize automatically after each heating cycle.
Proper mounting may lengthen the life span of your equipment, and controlled induction heating helps to prevent unnecessary damage.
Digital electronics provide optimum control during the heating process and automatically select the most efficient power supply to help ensure balanced and fast heating.
