Bolt Heating & Shrink Fitting

Our patented Bolt Heating System utilises specifically designed induction tools to thermally 'elongate' bolts in a fraction of the time of conventional methods. Allowing all heated bolts to be removed or tightened within one shift or less.

Bolt Heating & Shrink Fitting

This proven method reduces outage time by days, saving money as a result. Plus, the process alleviates safety concerns associated with the forceful removal of nuts by sledgehammers and spanners. Nuts can easily be removed using simple hand tools, reducing possible injury and lost man-hours.

Ambient to 800°C in 17 seconds.

Shrink Fitting Services

Using our Induction Heating Systems, Rapid Heat Systems can carry out any type of shrink fitting requirements. Our equipment can be controlled so that no damage is caused.

Shrink Fitting Services - Bearing Removal

Using our Rapid Heat Induction System we can quickly heat the bearing up to its target temperature and enable the bearing to be removed. As no excessive heat and no damage is caused to the bearing it can be reused.

Shrink Fitting Services - Shaft Replacement

By applying heat to the outside of the drive wheel we can increase the internal diameter hole to accept the new replacement shaft.

Care is taken to ensure all heat treated areas are not damaged and also that the internal hold is kept cold to stop heat transfer onto the replacement shaft when it is inserted.
