What is the experience and method of using induction furnace?

Author : Hongteng Time: 2022-03-16

In the process of smelting metal, the induction furnace uses the electromagnetic induction process, which saves energy and electricity, has no noise pollution, and meets the environmental protection production standards. It is very popular among users. However, some customers lack experience in using induction furnaces, so we will introduce them to you here.

If it is a newly purchased electric furnace, or an electric furnace that has been out of production for a long time, before starting production, we need to conduct an insulation test on the induction coil to check whether the coil is normal.

Before starting your electric furnace, check the furnace body, power supply, hydraulic pressure and cooling system to ensure that there is no problem with the equipment before starting the power supply.

The staff in front of the furnace must wear labor protection equipment. Before the raw materials to be smelted are put into the furnace body, the intermediate frequency power of the electric furnace is reduced, and after the metal raw materials are put in the furnace body, the rated power is gradually increased.

Be sure to stay focused during the smelting process. The staff need to pay attention to the changes of the furnace body, and deal with the problems in time to prevent the occurrence of major accidents.

Maintenance personnel need to regularly check the water temperature and water pressure alarm system of the furnace body and power supply, and make records to ensure the normal operation of the water cooling system.

After the metal is smelted, the molten steel needs to be poured out. At this time, you must remember to cut off the power supply and operate carefully to prevent the molten steel from splashing, so as to avoid fire.

If there is an emergency in the production process, you can refer to our previous article: What should we do when the induction furnace is in a water or power outage?

One final piece of advice: keep the control room tidy and don’t bring food into the workplace. If rats are attracted, they may bite the wire with their teeth, causing disaster for our production.

This is what Luoyang Hongteng editors share with you. Welcome to follow us to learn more about the use of induction furnace.
