How does an induction furnace smelt metal?

Author : Hongteng Time: 2022-03-17

In our daily life, we always come into contact with metals such as steel, iron, aluminum, copper, etc. For example, steel bars used in the construction of skyscrapers; aluminum alloy brackets in automobiles; copper wires in power supply wires.

To use these metals, they need to be pre-melted and post-processed. When we need to smelt metal, induction furnace is a good choice.

The induction furnace is mainly composed of an intermediate frequency power supply and a smelting furnace body, and the supporting equipment includes a transformer, a closed cooling tower, etc.

There are many models of induction furnaces, which can be designed according to the needs of users. For example, exclusively for smelting steel or exclusively for smelting aluminum.

Its production capacity is also designed to be flexible, depending on the size of the furnace body, it can reach 0.5t-15t per hour.

The heating process of the furnace body is realized by the induction coil, and the smelting of the metal can be completed in less than an hour. The speed is very fast and the work is very stable.

The induction furnace can work continuously for 24 hours. When in use, there is no noise during operation, which meets environmental protection standards.

After the metal is smelted, the molten steel needs to be poured out, which can be turned over by a reducer or by a hydraulic tilt to make the pouring process of the molten steel safer.

Some excellent induction furnace manufacturers will also design leakage furnace alarm devices and smelting management systems for electric furnaces to make the use of induction furnaces more convenient and safe.
