DEMAGNETIZING OF ROLLER BEARINGS AND SLIDE BEARINGS
Too much residual magnetism in roller bearings and slide bearings can cause damage in many different ways:
- Adhesion of metallic particles causes damage to the running surfaces
- A high degree of magnetism results in eddy currents and thus to erosion of the running surfaces (especially in large bearings)
- Magnetic hysteresis losses result in the heating of moving bearing parts
To counteract these effects, Maurer Magnetic offers specially-developed machines for the demagnetizing of individual bearing parts, and also for complete, assembled bearings.
