The 10 Ton Induction Furnace is a common industrial heating equipment, which is widely used in metal smelting, heat treatment and other fields. This article will introduce the composition, working principle and technical parameters of the 10 ton induction furnace.
Inductor: One of the core components of the induction furnace, consisting of a coil and a magnetic core. It produces an alternating magnetic field, which causes eddy currents and heat inside the workpiece.
Furnace body: the main part of the induction furnace, usually made of high temperature resistant materials. The inner wall of the furnace is coated with insulating material to reduce energy loss.
Power supply: The source of energy provided to the induction furnace, usually AC or DC.
Control system: used to control the working status and parameters of the induction furnace, including temperature control, current control, etc.
Other auxiliary equipment: such as cooling water system, fan, etc., are used to ensure the normal operation of the induction furnace.
Induction principle: When the alternating magnetic field acts on the inductor, a changing magnetic field will be generated in the inductor, and this changing magnetic field will generate an induced electromotive force, thereby generating a current in the induction coil. This current creates eddy currents inside the workpiece, which heats the workpiece.
Energy conversion principle: The alternating magnetic field in the induction furnace converts electrical energy into heat energy, thereby heating or melting the workpiece.
Temperature control principle: The temperature in the induction furnace is monitored and adjusted through the control system, so as to keep the temperature of the workpiece within a certain range.
Rated power: The rated power of a 10-ton induction furnace is usually between 10-50kW, depending on the size of the furnace and the application.
Rated voltage: The rated voltage of a 10-ton induction furnace is usually 380V or 660V, and there are also some higher voltage induction furnaces available.
Rated frequency: The rated frequency of a 10-ton induction furnace is usually 50Hz or 60Hz, and there are some induction furnaces with other frequencies to choose from.
Maximum no-load current: The maximum no-load current of a 10-ton induction furnace is usually below 10A, which is to ensure safe operation.
Maximum short-circuit current: The maximum short-circuit current of a 10-ton induction furnace is usually below 15A, which is to ensure safe operation.
Heating temperature range: The heating temperature range of a 10-ton induction furnace is usually between 100°C-1650°C, depending on the size of the furnace and the occasion of use.
Heating speed: The heating speed of the 10-ton induction furnace is usually relatively fast, which can heat the workpiece to the required temperature in a short time.
