Induction furnace price
Induction electric furnace is an induction heating furnace that uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to heat metal. It is also the most widely used heating equipment in the heating industry. It is not only used in forging industry, casting industry, hot stamping industry, but also widely used in quenching, Tempering and other metal conditioning.
The most inquired and used ones are power frequency induction furnaces and medium frequency induction furnaces. Therefore, the induction furnace price depends on factors such as the type of furnace, smelting charge and output.
Power Frequency Induction Furnace
It is an induction furnace powered by an electric current at an industrial frequency (50 or 60 Hz). Mainly used for smelting of cast iron and non-ferrous metals.
The power frequency induction furnace has developed into a kind of smelting equipment with a wide range of uses. It is mainly used as a melting furnace to smelt gray cast iron, malleable cast iron, ductile iron and alloy cast iron.
Due to the strong electromagnetic stirring force, the life of the furnace lining is very short during steelmaking, so it is not suitable for steelmaking unless the problem of the life of the refractory material can be solved. For non-ferrous metals (such as oxygen-free copper) with strict gas content requirements, it is not suitable to use power frequency crucible induction furnace. When the power frequency crucible induction furnace is used as a holding furnace, the induction coil is relatively short, about 1/4 of the height of the crucible.
In addition, it is also used as a holding furnace. As before, the power frequency induction furnace has replaced the cupola as the main equipment in casting production. Compared with the cupola, the power frequency induction furnace has the advantages of easy control of molten iron composition and temperature, and the gas in the casting and It has many advantages such as low amount of inclusions, no pollution to the environment, energy saving and improved working conditions. Therefore, power frequency induction furnaces have developed rapidly in recent years.
Medium Frequency Induction Furnace
The intermediate frequency furnace is a kind of smelting and heat preservation equipment suitable for smelting high-quality steel and alloys, and non-ferrous metals.
Compared with the induction furnace, it has the following advantages:
1) Fast melting speed and high production efficiency.
2) Strong adaptability and flexible use.
3) The effect of electromagnetic stirring is better.
4) Easy to start and operate.
5) There is no need for a three-phase balance device, and under the same productivity conditions, the size of the furnace body is small.
6) Since it can be emptied, it is more convenient to change the metal type.
Due to the above advantages, medium frequency induction furnaces have not only been widely used in the production of steel and alloys in recent years. Moreover, in cast iron production, especially in foundries with periodic operations, it has also developed rapidly.
Through the above, we can know that the induction furnace price needs to determine the melting raw materials, output, etc. to facilitate better production.
