How Does An Induction Melting Furnace Work?

Just a half of century ago, it’s common that to melt metals by using coal or gas. However, these tradition methods are passing away. Because tradition coal or gas based heating methods cause serious pollution, departments in charge of environment and city construction always request to eliminate such pollution. Besides, coal or gas is heated slowly and inconsistently, workpiece distort easily and has many oside layers, in which quality is poor and surface is not smooth. So now, the new technology by induction melting is chosen as it is more environmentally friendly and safe. It can not only save energy, and it is ideal heating method in China and even the whole world in 21st century.

20210301-2Melting metals with high frequency or medium frequency induction melting is usually accomplished by heating the metal in a crucible made from a non-conductive refractory material. The charge of metal within the crucible is melted down to liquid form.

This process is commonly used to produce high quality steels and nonferrous alloys for casting operations. The liquid metal is poured into a cavity with the desired shape. The metal solidifies with minimum of shrinkage, after which the mold is removed to reveal a finished, machinable product. In the metallurgical industry, it’s a good choice to deploy induction melting furnace to smelt some high quality and expensive material like specialized steel, gold, silver, platinum, and it is also available for melting common metals like iron and copper or metal alloy such as aluminum alloy, zinc alloy and copper alloy, stainless, steel, aluminum. etc.

High frequency or medium frequency induction melting furnace has excellent protections, with over-voltage, over-current, overheating and lack of water function. It is light weight with fast heating and high efficiency. And induction melting furnace is easy and install, suitable for all kinds of occasions where metal heating is required
