How do hydraulic nuts work?

Dismounting bearings mounted on either adapter or withdrawal sleeves is often a difficult and time-consuming task.

These problems can be reduced with the use of a hydraulic nut.

When a hydraulic nut is used, oil is pumped into the nut, and the piston is pushed out with enough force to free the sleeve. This significantly reduces the time taken to dismount the bearing, as well as reducing the manual effort involved.
