Fast, Safe & Flameless: Agricultural Equipment Maintenance with Induction Heating

Monday, December 10, 2018

Bearing Buddy in Action

In farming, efficiency is key. Downtime while key equipment is repaired or serviced can equal lost revenue, as opportunities can be fleeting and schedules must be kept to throughout the farming calendar.

This is something Stuart, Andrew and Jamie Crichton of R&C Crichton know well. As a company, the farm carries out contract work on over 700 acres every year, while their own land produces a yield of 8-10,000 tons of turnips per year.

All that requires the might of multiple pieces of equipment, each vital in its own way to the running of the farm. Between them, the Crichtons operate five tractors, three forklifts, plus all manner cultivators, plows and rollers, carrying out as much maintenance in-house as possible in order to keep costs to a minimum and ensure the longevity of each piece of equipment.

How to Extend Bearing Buddy Coil Life

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Induction Heating Bearing Buddy

While mechanics, bodyshops, truck technicians, and farmers love their Mini-Ductor® Venom® and Mini-Ductor II induction heating tools, their safety and effectiveness are dependent on the state of the pre-formed coils used with them.

The Inductor® coils are vital accessories for technicians and we're often asked by customers for tips and advice on how to extend the life of our coils.

For example, the Bearing Buddy coil (available in both 41" and 96" lengths) is used to free steering and suspension parts, frozen O² sensors, remove ball joints and tie-rod ends. These coils are available in regular or long sizes.

Each coil will last several hundred uses, but avoiding abrasion and overheating, which can breach the insulation, prevents premature wear.
