Induction furnaces – a setup that use induction heating for melting metals (or other materials). Induction furnaces are used not only in huge factories, but on small plants. Induction furnaces used in industry are: – coreless induction furnace – channel induction furnaces. Coreless induction furnace consists of an inductor and of the crucible. Crucible made of refractory, ceramic materials, for the smelting of nonferrous metals using graphite crucibles, and for the use of fusible metal, steel or cast iron pots.
In such an induction furnace smelted precious metals, steel, iron, aluminum and other capacity induction furnace depends on the capacity of the crucible. Crucible may not be large, with capacities ranging from a few kilograms, as well as the volume can reach several hundred tons. The main purpose of the channel induction pecheysostoit in to carry out the process of smelting of nonferrous metals such as zinc, aluminum, bronze, etc. Channel induction furnace is preferable to use in the smelting of metals to which high demands. Channel induction furnaces include your configuration lined bathtubs and induction units that are under the bathtub. In-lined baths contained almost the entire mass of molten metal. The main advantages of channel induction furnaces are: 1.
minimal oxidation and evaporation of metals, 2. low power consumption for melting, overheating and bearing metals 3. high thermal efficiency of the furnace. Disadvantages of channel induction furnaces: 1. to be kept in the oven a large number of molten metal 2. slag, located on the surface of the bath, has a low 3. harsh conditions of the lining channel.
