What is induction melting?
Induction melting is a cost-effective way of raising the temperature of a metal or ore to its melting point and maintaining that temperature to perform metallurgical processes such as smelting, alloying, mixing and casting.
Induction melting is a clean process that can be used to create metal products with high precision and repeatability. The process is also faster and more energy efficient than other melting methods, making it an attractive option for many metal production applications.
An induction furnace is an electric furnace in which heat is applied by inductively heating metal. Induction furnaces range in capacity from less than one kilogram to a hundred tons and are used to smelt steel, copper, aluminum and precious metals.
Most modern foundries use this type of furnace, and many iron foundries are replacing cupola furnaces with induction furnaces for melting cast iron because the former emit a lot of dust and other pollutants.
Benefits of induction melting
Induction melting is a quick, clean and uniform way to melt metal. When done correctly, it can be so clean that you can skip the purification stage that’s necessary with other methods. The even heat from induction melting also leads to a higher quality end result.
