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.

Hydraulic Cylinder Leaks (And How to Fix them)

What is a Hydraulic Cylinder, and How does it work? A Hydraulic Cylinder is a mechanical actuator, designed to carry a Hydrostatic force in a single direction. Commonly used in construction equipment, civil engineering, and machinery designed for the manufacturing process. A hydraulic cylinder uses any form of hydraulic fluid, typically oil, that is pushed back and forth by a piston into each side of the cylinder. This enables the linear motion to work, making machines such as Bulldozers and tractors carry out movements such as breaking down buildings or heavy lifting that cannot be done through human force. Hydraulic cylinders consist of a piston rod, a piston seal, and two separate regions, all nutted and bolted together to exert the force of hydraulic fluid within the cylinder tube. A hydraulic cylinder exerts massive amounts of force, anywhere from several kilograms, to a couple of thousand tonnes! Whatever linear motion you need automating, a good quality hydraulic cylinder is the perfect solution for any manufacturing, farming, civil engineering, or automation company’s needs. What Causes Hydraulic Cylinders to Leak? A common problem for high-load engineering and manufacturing companies is working out ways to minimize leakages from their hydraulic cylinders. Leakages in

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 clean rust off the hydraulic cylinder

how to clean rust off the hydraulic cylinder

Rust is a common problem that can affect hydraulic cylinders. The corrosion caused by rust can lead to pitting and other damage to the cylinder, which can cause it to fail. In order to avoid this, it is important to take steps to prevent rust from forming in the first place. Why does rust form on hydraulic cylinders There are several reasons why rust can form on a cylinder. One reason is that the cylinder is not properly sealed. If dirt, moisture, or other contaminants get inside the cylinder, they can cause rust to form. Another reason why rust can form on a cylinder is because of the material that it is made out of. Some materials are more prone to rust than others(learn more about the materials used in cylinder production here). And finally, the way that the cylinder is used can also contribute to rust formation. The various ways that rust can be removed from a cylinder Rust can be very difficult to remove and often requires the use of special tools and chemicals. There are several methods that can be used to remove rust from a cylinder head. One common method is to use a wire brush to scrub off

Wind Turbine Guide: introduction, installation, and maintenance

WHAT IS A WIND TURBINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK? ​ A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical energy. The most common type of wind turbine uses a rotor to capture the wind’s kinetic energy and turn it into rotational energy. This rotational energy is then converted into electrical energy by a generator. Wind turbines have been around for centuries, but have only recently become popular as people have looked for ways to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. Turbines can be used to generate power for homes and businesses, and can also be connected to the electrical grid. While there are some concerns about the impact of turbines on the environment, they are a much cleaner alternative to traditional power sources. HISTORY OF WIND TURBINES ​ The history of wind turbines is a long and varied one. The first wind turbines were built by the Egyptians in the 3rd century BC. These early turbines were used to power sailboats. In the 18th century, Dutch windmills were used to pump water out of mines. In the early 20th century, wind turbines began to be used to generate electricity. Today, wind turbines are
