EziTite Bearing Setters
Major bearing manufacturers estimate that around 16% of bearings fail prematurely due to poor fitting. Breakdowns are expensive, and rework proves particularly frustrating. The use of the EziTite® Bearing Setter employs hydraulic power to guide bearings into place effortlessly, and provides optimum preload as required.
The EziTite® Bearing Setter has been designed with the operator in mind, offering many optional extras readily available to ensure trouble free operation.
Some features of the EziTite® Bearing Setter are:
- Dial gauge mounting point as standard.
- Visible maximum stroke indicator.
- Custom thread sizes available on request.
- Split designs available on request.
- Designs can be engineered to suit individual applications.
- Requires little physical effort.
The EziTite® Bearing Setter assembly is screwed by hand onto the shaft or adaptor sleeve until the base is tight against the bearings inner race.
Hydraulic pressure is then applied through the nipple fitting on top or side of the nut body into the sealed chamber, forcing the piston and the nut body apart, thus driving the bearing onto its tapered mount.
Once the desired bearing drive up has been achieved the pressure is relieved, the Bearing Setter can be removed and is then replaced with a standard locking nut.
