Safe bearing assembly with new generation BETEX induction heaters
Safe bearing assembly thanks to smart technology of the new generation BETEX Low Frequency induction heaters
Vaassen, February 2019. At the Hannover Messe Bega Special Tools will introduce a new generation of low frequency induction heaters. These are used for controlled heating of bearings, gears and other machine parts. By using smart processor technology, there is better control over a stress-free and controlled heating process. The heating process can be recorded by the log function.
Correct bearing assembly is one of the critical processes that affect the lifespan of a bearing. Requirements for correct installation are increasing. Especially for very expensive bearings or for bearings in hard-to-reach locations. With the introduction of the new series, Bega meets the demand from the industry to be able to exercise a great(er) control over the heating and assembly process.
Two series have been developed: a BASIC series and a SMART series.
The BASIC series replace part of the current BETEX range. These heaters work with a simple keyboard and have a single temperature sensor. Heating can be done in time or temperature mode. Smart electronics ensure optimal heating and efficient use of power.
The SMART series is used when more control over the heating process is needed. These have a modern easy-to-use touchscreen. The heating process can be seen in a clear graph. Data can be saved and externally documented via a USB connection. By means of a double temperature measurement (Delta T) it is possible to fully influence the temperature progress.
Now it is possible for the operator to determines exactly at what rate a bearing is being heated. Speed is therefore not decisive, but stress-free heating is. This prevents damage.
Induction heating is a sustainable way of heating. It replaces old techniques such as ovens, oil baths or open fire, where much more energy is consumed. These methods cause pollution and safety risks. BETEX heaters are robust and made for industrial and intensive use. These modern induction heaters are very efficient in their energy consumption.
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Vaassen in The Netherlands, Bega Special Tools manufactures and distributes special tools for safe, cost-effective mounting and dismounting of bearings and transmission parts. These tools substantially improve the quality and ease of maintenance and installation of rotating parts in machines, resulting in longer lifespan.

Beware of Copy Cats
On various occasions it has been brought to our attention that our Bega (Betex) heaters are being copied.
We have received pictures from China (can be expected) and recently even from USA Florida! (surprising).
In both cases the parties involved are ex-distributors of Bega Special Tools.
