APPLICATION DESIGN PRINCIPLE

Application

Design Principle

FAG hydraulic nuts are used for


pressing parts with a tapered bore
onto tapered seats. They are used
primarily where the drive-up force
of locknuts and pressure bolts is
not sufficient.

FAG hydraulic nuts consist of an


annular body and a piston, fig. 1.
The piston is operated hydraulically. The pressure chamber is sealed
by two O-rings of soft PVC.

Main fields of application:


Mounting of rolling bearings with
a tapered bore. The bearings can
be mounted directly on tapered
shaft seats or on adapter or withdrawal sleeves. Hydraulic nuts
can also be used to dismount
sleeve-mounted bearings.
Mounting of couplings, gearwheels, impellers, ships propellers ...

The hydraulic nuts are designed


for a maximum oil pressure of
800 bar.
Their stroke is powerful enough
that the rolling bearings or other
parts can be mounted in a single
operation.
The bore d2 in the annular body is
available with a metric fine thread,
a trapezoidal thread or an inch
thread so that suitable FAG hydraulic nuts are available for all
currently used sleeve and shaft

30 *

Handling holes

threads. Where higher drive-up


forces are required FAG also offer
hydraulic nuts with a straight bore
(reinforced design).
FAG hydraulic nuts feature two oilsupply connection holes with a
G 1/4 thread. In devices with a
threaded bore, one hole each is
provided in the face and in the
O.D., in the reinforced design both
are located in the O.D. If a dial
gauge (page 16) is used, an additional connection hole in the face
may be required.
Threaded-bore hydraulic nuts have
handling holes for easier handling.
The larger the hydraulic nut, the
larger the number of these holes,
see table in fig. 2.
Larger hydraulic nuts also feature
threaded holes for eyebolts to facilitate handling.

Design Variations
FAG hydraulic nuts are available in
various designs:
with a metric fine thread and
with a trapezoidal thread
This design is suitable for all
standardized metric adapter
sleeves and withdrawal sleeves.
Order designations:
RKP50 to RKP200 (metric fine
thread to DIN 13) and
RKP205 to RKP1180A (trapezoidal thread to DIN 103)

of reinforced design
These hydraulic nuts have a
straight bore machined to H7.
They were primarily developed
for shipbuilding, because of the
higher mounting forces required
in this field and because the hydraulic nuts are usually mounted
on a nut with a centering rim.
Order designations:
RKP100.529554A to
RKP900.526225A

Replacement Seals
Seals are subject to wear. FAG supply replacement seals for all hydraulic nuts (1 set comes with
every hydraulic nut).
Order examples:
RKP115.169756 (for RKP115)
RKP160Z.169756 (for RKP160Z)
RKP600.526217A.169756 (for
RKP600.526217A)

Hydraulic nuts with a dial gauge


(see page 16) as well as special designs are available from FAG on request.

with an inch thread


These hydraulic nuts comply
with the ABMA Standards for
Bearing Mounting Accessories,
Section 8, Locknut Series N-00.
Order designations:
RKP90Z to RKP530Z.

Pressure generator required

We recommend to use FAG


hand pump sets because they are
easy to operate, pump larger volumes of oil and can be used universally.

Hydraulic nuts are oil-pressure operated. FAG offer an extensive programme of accessories which com-

prises pressure generators and


connection pieces. Fig. 3 shows
which FAG pressure generators are
required for operating the hydraulic nuts.

LOCKING DEVICES THAT PREVENT ROTATION

In various applications hydraulic


nuts remain on the shaft or on the
adapter sleeve. For these applications FAG offer locking devices in
three different designs, fig. 6.

Shaft

Locking devices of designs SA and


SC consist of clamps and hexagon
head screws. The shaft must be adequately slotted. Slot dimensions
are listed in fig. 7. Adapter sleeves
always feature this slot. The
threaded holes for the hexagon
head screws are drilled into the
annular body on mounting.
Locking device SB consists of a
setscrew and copper pin.

ROLLING BEARING MOUNTING WITH HYDRAULIC NUTS

FAG 12

Hydraulic nuts are used for mounting rolling bearings with a tapered
bore. The mounting is carried out
either dry or hydraulically. If the
hydraulic method is employed, oil
is pumped between the mating
surfaces to build up an oil film so
that very little drive-up force is required from the hydraulic nut.

The bearing is driven upon its seat


by actuating the hydraulic nut. The
amount of axial displacement of
the bearing depends on the required amount of radial clearance
reduction. When driving the bearing onto the tapered seat, the radial clearance must be checked regularly by feeler gauges.

Fig. 8 shows a spherical roller


bearing directly driven up a tapered shaft. First the bearing is
placed on the tapered seat, and the
hydraulic nut is screwed onto the
shaft until the bearing sits firmly
on the shaft.

With the hydraulic method, the oil


pressure must be relieved for radial clearance measuring. If the radial clearance cannot be measured, for example because it is
not permitted by the housing
shape, the axial drive up can be
measured instead. On pages 14
and 15 the values for the required

for the corresponding axial drive

and spherical roller bearings are
listed.
When using the hydraulic method,
it takes about 10 to 30 minutes (depending on the size of the bearing)
until the oil has cleared the fitting
joint after mounting. Then the hydraulic nut can be removed, and
the locknut or sleeve nut can be
screwed on and locked.
Rolling bearings that are mounted
on adapter or withdrawal sleeves
can be fitted in the same way (figs.
9 and 10).

ROLLING BEARING MOUNTING WITH HYDRAULIC NUTS

Hydraulic nuts are also suitable for


mounting hydraulic withdrawal
sleeves, fig. 11. The piston of the
hydraulic nut is supported by a
plate which is bolted to the shaft.
This is not necessary when mounting hydraulic adapter sleeves,
fig. 9.

Fig. 12 shows how to dismount a


withdrawal sleeve. If the shaft is
not long enough to prevent constriction of the thread, the withdrawal sleeve must be supported
by a thick-walled auxiliary ring.

Adapter sleeves can be dismounted if the bearings inner ring abuts


axially and the piston of the hydraulic nut is supported by a
mounting plate, fig. 13.

) Applies only to solid steel shafts and hollow shafts whose bore is not larger than half the shaft diameter.

Note: Bearings whose radial clearance is in the upper half of the tolerance range prior to mounting, are mounted with the larger value of radial clearance reduction or axial drive-up. Bearings in the lower half of the tolerance range are mounted with the smaller value of the radial clearance reduction or axial drive up.

1) Applies only to solid steel shafts and hollow shafts whose bore is not larger than half the shaft diameter.
Note: Bearings whose radial clearance is in the upper half of the tolerance range prior to mounting, are mounted with the larger value of radial clearance reduction or axial drive-up. Bearings in the lower half of the tolerance range are mounted with the smaller value of the radial clearance reduction or axial drive up.

HYDRAULIC NUTS WITH A DISPLACEMENT MEASURING


INSTRUMENT

3 (max 4)

If, due to poor accessibility of the


bearing location, the radial clearance measurement with a feeler
gauge described on page 12 is not
possible, the axial drive up of the
bearing on the tapered seat can be
measured instead. For this purpose
a measuring instrument can be
screwed to the face of the hydraulic nut, fig. 14.

G1/4

If the axial hole G 1/4 in the hydraulic nut is occupied by the


pump, users can produce the second axial hole required for the
measuring instrument themselves.
On request FAG also supply hydraulic nuts, suffixed .2A, that already feature such a hole, fig. 1.
Order example: RKP200.2A

First, the bearing has to be placed


on the shaft. The required oil pressure is determined by the bearing
size and by the number of contact
areas and is indicated in the operating instructions. Then the dial
gauge must be adjusted to zero.
The bearing is driven up the shaft
by pumping until the specified
drive up has been achieved.
Which of the metering needles
supplied has to be selected for
which application is also specified
in the detailed operating instructions that come with every measuring instrument.

GENERAL MOUNTING AIDS FOR THE HYDRAULIC PROCEDURE

FAG hydraulic nuts are not only


suitable for bearing mounting.
They can also be used for other
press-fitted assemblies (e.g. gearwheels, drive wheels and cou-

plings). Considerable drive-up


forces are also often required in
general machine construction, and
especially in shipbuilding. Such
forces can be economically ap-

plied by means of hydraulic nuts.


Figs. 15 to 18 show examples of
parts mounted by the hydraulic
method.
