Bega HXPM100

Dismounting a train wheel with a combination of the HXPM100 and oil pressure.

In this example a train wheel is removed utilising a combination of oil pressure and hydraulic pulling force. A high pressure pump (UHAP2800 Ultra) is used to create an oil film between the axle shaft and train wheel. In the first instance, oil is fed under high pressure into the wheel bore and axle. Next, a hydraulic puller (HXPM 100ton) is applied. Due to the film of oil between the two components the wheel is effectively "floating" and pulling it off the axle is now an easy task. This is achieved without incurring any damage to shaft or wheel bore. This method is fast, efficient and practical to use in all workshops involved in the maintenance of rolling stock, locomotives, trains and trams.

Bega Induction Heater

Induction heating - the energy saving alternative.

Induction heating is an efficient, swift and controlled method of heating. It is a safe and environmentally friendly alternative for traditional heating methods such as ovens, oil baths or blow torches. These methods can cause smoke, fumes or oil waste and are hazardous to both the environment and individual health and safety.

Choose from a wide range of Standard and Turbo models. The New Generation TURBO heaters have the additional advantage of low energy consumption combined with a high output. Bega induction heaters are incredibly versatile and can also be used for the heating of gear wheels, bushes, couplings etc. Controlled induction heating prevents unnecessary damage, can retain original pre-lubrication and is ideal for use on sealed or shielded bearings. In addition, correct mounting typically extends a bearings operational life span.

Digital electronics provide optimal control during the heating process and automatically select the most efficient power supply to ensure balanced and rapid heating as part of a single stage process. Linear heating prevents discoloration or pitting of material often associated with less controlled, aggressive forms of heating.
