(For mounting and dismounting bearings, gears, couplings wheels and propellers)
Oil Injection reduces the force required to mount or dismount bearings, gears, couplings, propellers and railway wheels from cylindrical and tapered shafts that have been manufactured or retrofitted with oil ducts and grooves. The pressure of the injected oil which can be up to 58,000 PSI (400MPa) simply helps overcome the shrink fit allowing much easier installation or removal. Using the Oil Injection technique reduces damage and increases bearing life of bearings by decreasing the force required for mounting and dismounting. On larger bearings both Oil Injection and a Hydraulic Nut may be used together to achieve the optimal installation.
