Choosing the right induction melting furnace is an important decision for any foundry that wants to use this method of heating and melting metals or alloys. There are several factors to consider when buying or selecting an induction melting furnace, such as:
- The size and capacity of the furnace: Induction melting furnaces are available in different sizes, ranging from small to large. Depending on the size of your melting foundry, you should select an induction furnace with a capacity that meets or exceeds the quantity of metal that you want to melt³. Typically, induction furnaces occupy less space and are therefore suitable for use in foundries of all sizes.
- The type and frequency of the furnace: There are two basic types of induction melting furnaces: coreless and channel. Coreless furnaces use a coil of copper tubing that surrounds the crucible and creates an electromagnetic field that heats and melts the metal. Channel furnaces use a loop of molten metal that surrounds an iron core and acts as a secondary coil that transfers heat to the crucible. Coreless furnaces are more flexible and can melt various metals and alloys, while channel furnaces are more efficient and can melt large quantities of metals with high conductivity¹. The frequency of the furnace refers to the number of cycles per second of the alternating current that passes through the coil. The frequency can range from low (50 or 60 Hz) to high (up to 10 kHz). The frequency affects the depth of penetration, stirring, and heating rate of the metal. Generally, higher frequencies are used for smaller furnaces and lower frequencies are used for larger furnaces.
- The power and energy consumption of the furnace: The power of the furnace refers to the amount of electrical energy that is converted into heat energy for melting. The power can be measured in kilowatts (kW) or megawatts (MW). The power affects the melting speed, productivity, and quality of the metal. The energy consumption of the furnace refers to the amount of electrical energy that is used per unit weight of metal melted. The energy consumption can be measured in kilowatt-hours per ton (kWh/t) or megajoules per kilogram (MJ/kg). The energy consumption affects the operating cost, efficiency, and environmental impact of the furnace. Generally, induction melting furnaces have lower energy consumption than other types of furnaces, such as arc or gas furnaces.
- The durability and maintenance of the furnace: The durability of the furnace refers to how long the furnace can last and perform reliably under harsh conditions. The durability depends on the quality of the materials, components, and design of the furnace. The maintenance of the furnace refers to how often and how easily the furnace needs to be repaired, cleaned, or replaced. The maintenance depends on the wear and tear, corrosion, and contamination of the furnace. Generally, induction melting furnaces have high durability and low maintenance compared to other types of furnaces, such as arc or gas furnaces.
- The safety and environmental standards of the furnace: The safety of the furnace refers to how well the furnace protects the operators, workers, and equipment from potential hazards, such as electric shocks, explosions, spills, or burns. The safety depends on the features, controls, and procedures of the furnace. The environmental standards of the furnace refer to how well the furnace reduces or eliminates harmful emissions, wastes, or noises that may affect the health or quality of life of people or animals. The environmental standards depend on the regulations, technologies, and practices of the furnace. Generally, induction melting furnaces have high safety and environmental standards compared to other types of furnaces, such as arc or gas furnaces.
- Inspecting and replacing the refractory linings of the furnace, which protect the coil from molten metal and heat. The refractory linings can wear out over time and cause leaks or ground faults. The frequency of inspection and replacement depends on the type and temperature of the metal being melted.
- Checking and cleaning the water-cooling system, which prevents overheating of the induction coil and other components. The water-cooling system should be free of dirt, scale, corrosion, and leaks1. The water quality, flow rate, and pressure should also be monitored and adjusted as needed.
- Testing and calibrating the ground fault detection system, which protects the operator and the equipment from electric shocks. The ground fault detection system should be operational and sensitive enough to detect any leakage currents in the induction circuit. The ground fault detection system should never be bypassed or disabled, as this can pose a serious safety hazard.
- Examining and repairing the induction coil, which generates the electromagnetic field that heats the metal. The induction coil should be free of cracks, breaks, or deformations that can affect its performance or efficiency. The coil connections, insulation, and supports should also be checked for any damage or wear.
These are some of the basic preventive maintenance tasks for induction melting machines. For more detailed information, you can refer to KETCHAN‘s induction melting furnace manual.
