The IH 025 VOLCANO, available from ERIKS UK, is the perfect addition to the simatherm range of induction heaters.
The simatherm IH 025 VOLCANO marks the start of a new era in the field of portable induction heaters. The patented technology employed enables outstanding heating performance from an extremely light structure weighing just 3.5 kg (7.7 lb). It can be used to heat roller bearings with internal diameters of over 20 mm, external diameters starting at 160 mm and a weight of up to 10 kg (22lb).
The IH 025 VOLCANO operates in the high-frequency range, making it extremely efficient. It can reach a maximum heating temperature of up to 180°C (356°F), and also offers integrated time and temperature regulation.
The IH 025 VOLCANO also offers a unique product benefit with PTC (Predictive Temperature Control). This function ensures that the workpiece is heated evenly and the preselected temperature is achieved precisely and quickly, with no risk of overheating.
In addition to roller bearings, the simatherm IH 025 VOLCANO is also suitable for heating other circular ferritic metal components such as gear wheels, pulleys, bushings, flanges, bearing rings, pinions and shrink rings. The device is available in three voltages: 230 V/50/60 Hz, 115 V/50/60 Hz and 100 V/50/60 Hz. The VOLCANO is extremely easy to operate: insert the mains plug (230 V), connect the temperature probe to the inner ring of the workpiece and begin heating. For example, a 5 kg (11 lb) bearing can be heated to the ideal mounting temperature of 110°C (230°F) in under 4 minutes. Simply place the workpiece on the VOLCANO's heating cone and start the heating process.
The modern and compact design of the VOLCANO makes it a small and extremely space-saving induction heater. The fact that it operates silently and automatically demagnetises the workpieces makes the IH 025 VOLCANO indispensable in any workshop.
