Different Types of Bearing Pullers and What to Consider Before Buying

Safety Cage Hydraulic Puller

A bearing puller is a specialized tool that is used to remove bearings from a shaft. The bearing puller consists of two parts: the body and the jaws. The body is attached to the shaft, and the jaws are connected to the bearing. When the jaws are tightened, they pull the bearing off of the shaft.

Different Types of Bearing Pullers

Hydraulic Bearing Puller and Mechanical Bearing Puller 

A hydraulic bearing puller uses fluid pressure to push the bearing of the shaft, while a mechanical bearing puller uses a set of jaws to grip the bearing and pull it off the shaft. Which type of bearing puller you use depends on the size and bearing you are removing. A hydraulic bearing puller is typically used for larger bearings, while a mechanical Bearing puller is typically used for smaller bearings. 

Integral Bearing Puller and Split Type Bearing Puller

An integral hydraulic bearing puller is a one-piece hydraulic puller with a built-in hydraulic hand pump. While a split-type bearing puller consists of a hydraulic puller and a separate hydraulic pump, both components are connected together by high-pressure hydraulic hoses

Two Jaw Bearing Puller and Three Jaw Bearing Puller.

There are a few types of bearing pullers available on the market. The two-jaws and three-jaw bearing pullers are the most common. The two-jaw bearing puller is used to remove bearings with an inside diameter that is smaller than the width of the pulling jaws. The three-jaw bearing puller is used to remove bearings with an inside diameter that is larger than the width of the pulling jaws.

Trolley Mounted Bearing Puller

A trolley-mounted bearing puller is a bearing puller device that is mounted on a moveable trolley. This bearing puller is often used in industrial applications where large and heavy bearings need to be pulled from a shaft or assembly. The trolley-mounted bearing puller consists of a frame that supports a hydraulic cylinder, as well as an arm that attaches to the pulling head. The hydraulic cylinder is connected to the arm via a pivot point, which allows the arm to be raised and lowered. The pulling head is attached to the end of the arm and includes various adapters that can be used to fit different sizes and types of bearings. When activated, the hydraulic cylinder pushes or pulls the arm, which in turn pulls or pushes on the pulling head and dislodges the bearing from its mount.

What To Consider Before Buying A Bearing Puller

When you need to remove a bearing from a shaft, a bearing puller is a tool for the job. But before you buy one, there are some things you need to consider.

The first is the size of the bearing and its position. The pullers need to be big enough to fit over the bearing and shaft. You need to fully understand the spread and reach the range of the puller before you make a purchase. The reach is the available distance between the pulling surface of the jaw and the jaw head of the puller. This distance varies and decreases as the jaws open. The spread is simply the diameter that the jaws extend to. Usually up to 25 inches

The second is the type of puller.  as long as the space permits, it is best to use a 3-jaw puller than a 2-jaw puller since they are safer and easier to use. Hydraulic types of pullers are easier to operate than mechanical pullers, but you will need a pump, hose, and gauge. Depending upon the size of the puller, the pump may be powered by hand, or electric.

The third thing is the tonnage of the puller. Pullers are available in a wide range of capacities. The majority of models available range somewhere between 2 and 50  tons. However, specialist 2 and 3 jaw trolley mounted hydraulic puller units from RIVERLAKE are available in 50 tons,100 tons, and 200 tons.

The fourth thing to consider is the cost. Usually, a larger tonnage puller is more expensive than the smaller one. When it comes to the same tonnage, the trolley-mounted puller is the most expensive one, the split-type hydraulic puller is less expensive, the integral puller is cheaper than a split-type, and the mechanical puller is the cheapest.

The last thing and yet the most important thing to consider is safety. Always make sure you purchase the right tools from a qualified manufacturer or brand, the puller should be made of high-strength materials so that its jaw won’t break easily to bring personal injury. When you purchase a hydraulic puller, make sure that the puller complies with ISO10100:2001 standards and features a 1.5-capacity safety factor.RIVERLAKE bearing pullers are tested ok under 105Mpa before being packaged and sold, all puller jaws are made of high-strength forged steel materials. The customer gets a 12-month free parts replacement warranty for our tools if under proper use.

Electric Hydraulic Pump

How Does a Hydraulic Pump Work?

A hydraulic pump is a machine that uses the power of fluid to move objects. The first pumps were invented in the seventeenth century, and they were mainly used for irrigation. Over time, however, hydraulic pumps have been used for a variety of other purposes, including mining, manufacturing, and moving objects. How Does a Hydraulic Pump Work? A hydraulic pump is a machine that uses the pressure of fluids to move things. It works by using a piston and cylinder assembly to push and pull fluid through a series of tubes. The force of the fluid moving through the tubes creates a mechanical force that can be used to do work. There are two main types of hydraulic pumps: reciprocating and impeller. A reciprocating pump has a piston that moves back and forth inside the cylinder. The force created by this motion is used to push or pull fluid through the system. An impeller is a spinning cylinder, and it can be used as a reciprocating pump or as an aerator. The main components of a hydraulic pump are pistons, cylinders, valves, and pipes. They are all connected together in order to create a system that can move fluids. A piston is

How To FIX a Sinking Foundation

A home’s foundation is its most important structural element. It supports the rest of the house and keeps it from sinking, shifting, or cracking. When a foundation starts to sink, it can cause various other problems that can be costly and dangerous to fix. Causes of a sinking foundation Sinking foundations are a common problem in homes across the country. There are several potential causes of this issue, including weak or improperly compacted soil, improper drainage, and poor foundation construction. In some cases, the underlying problem may be something as simple as a tree root growing too close to the home’s foundation. However, other factors such as weather conditions or changes in the groundwater level can also contribute to a sinking foundation. If you are experiencing this problem with your home, it is essential to identify the cause and take steps to correct it as soon as possible. Signs that you have a sinking foundation A sinking foundation is a serious structural problem that can lead to a home’s collapse. There are several signs that can indicate your foundation is starting to sink. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have your foundation inspected by a professional foundation

Bolt Tensioning vs Torquing: Introduction, difference, pros and cons.

Bolt Tensioning vs Torquing: Introduction, difference, pros, and cons.

Introduction Bolt tensioning and torquing are two different ways to adjust the tension on a bolt. Torque is the ability to apply a rotational force and is used to tighten and loosen bolts, while bolt tensioning is when the bolt’s nut is tightened against the head of the bolt. This tightening creates a drag on the bolt, increasing its stability and preventing it from loosening during use. Torque wrench use generally depends on the size of the bolt, while tensioners can be used with almost any bolt size. What is bolt tensioning? Bolt tensioning is the process of adjusting the tension on a nut or bolt by using a hydraulic press force. This is done to precisely adjust the strength of the connection between the parts being joined. The process can tighten or loosen connections, and it is an often-needed procedure in many industries. Hydraulic bolt tensioners are an essential part of modern machinery, as they allow for accurate and repeatable adjustment of bolt tension. What is bolt torquing? Bolt torquing is the act of tightening or loosening a bolt by turning it with a wrench. It’s an important part of industrial maintenance, and it can be done by hand or using a torque wrench. Torque is measured in
