What is induction melting?
Induction melting is a cost-effective and energy-efficient method of raising the temperature of a metal to its melting point and to hold that temperature to perform metallurgical processes such as smelting, alloying, mixing, and casting.
Two types of furnaces are used in induction melting:
KGPS intermediate frequency induction furnace--Using KGPS intermediate frequency power supply, the frequency is small, but the power can be relatively large, the maximum can be 4000KW. Suitable for large-scale foundries, such as large-capacity industrial iron melting furnaces, stainless steel melting furnaces, steelmaking furnaces, billet induction heating furnaces, etc.
IGBT intermediate frequency induction furnace--Using IGBT intermediate frequency power supply, the advantage of this power supply is high electrical efficiency, which can generally reach more than 90%. Therefore, it saves 10-20% of electricity than the thyristor, and has little impact on the power grid. Generally suitable for small-capacity aluminum melting furnace, copper melting furnace, zinc melting furnace, induction heating of steel wire, etc.
