SKF Hydraulic EasyPull
SKF Maintenance Products, a division of the SKF Group, has
extended its range of mechanical tools with the introduction
of the new bearing puller SKF Hydraulic EasyPull, TMMA 8E.
The Hydraulic EasyPull combines safety and user-friendliness
with the effortless force generation by an integrated hydraulic
spindle. A safety valve built in the hydraulic spindle helps
prevent puller overload and protects the operator during dismounting.
The Hydraulic EasyPull TMMA 8E has a maximum withdrawal force
of 80 kN (8 tons imperial) and a long stroke of 80 mm (3.1
in), which facilitate bearing dismounting in one operation.
The Hydraulic EasyPull's unique red rings spring-operated
opening mechanism allows the puller to be placed behind the
bearing with one movement of the hands. Additionally, its
self-locking arms facilitate firm grip behind the bearing,
minimising the risk of the puller slipping while under load.
The spring-loaded centre point on the hydraulic spindle allows
easy centring of the puller on the shaft without damaging
The new SKF Hydraulic EasyPull Set, TMMA 8E/SET is the most
complete dismounting kit available on the market today. The
set offers the unique combination of the Hydraulic EasyPull,
a tri-section pulling plate and a puller protective blanket.
Combined together, the components of the set facilitate safe
and effortless dismounting of bearings or other components,
such as pulleys and flywheels.
The tri-section pulling plate, TMMS 160, is especially designed
for use in combination with three-armed pullers. The TMMS
160 grips behind the inner ring of the bearing, which prevents
the pulling forces from being transmitted through the outer
ring and the rolling elements, minimising the risk of bearing
damage and reducing the force required for dismounting.
The puller protective blanket, TMMX 350, is made of tough
transparent plastic, allowing the user to see what is happening
during dismounting and thereby increasing the level of protection.
The TMMX 350 is wrapped around the puller and bearing during
dismounting, reducing the risk of potential personal injury
in the event of component failure.
The Hydraulic EasyPull Set is supplied in a durable metal
case with special storage facilities for all parts, minimising
the risk of loosing any of the components.
