What should we do if the induction coil in the electric metal melting furnace is blocked?


The induction coil is the core part of the electric metal melting furnace. However, due to various reasons, it may be blocked. What should we do if it occurs? Today, Judian will show you the common reasons for the induction coil being blocked and the solutions. It may be helpful to improve the melting efficiency and reduce the additional loss.

When using the electric metal melting furnace, sometimes, there will be induction coil blockage. It will affect the production efficiency of the entire production line.

Today, the great electric editor will give you an analysis of the furnace induction ring blocked causes and solutions.

Two Common Reasons for Electric Metal Melting Furnace Induction Coil Blocked

One is foreign body blockage. The cooling water of the melting furnace is sometimes directly extracted from the river. There are many foreign bodies in the water. So when extracting and using the river water, foreign bodies will easily block the induction coil.

Another is scale blockage. The water source used for cooling is basically natural water, and the hardness is relatively large. The melting furnace will produce a high temperature when it is working. Thus, it is easy to produce a scale attached to the copper pipe induction coil.

The scale is basically made up of calcium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide. If left untreated for a long time, the scale will become more and more solid. Finally, the fouling will not only plug the coil, cause the water flow to be not smooth, but also affect the overall performance and service life of the electric furnace.

Solutions to the Problem

1. we can in the cooling water into the furnace body before the filter screen and filter out the large foreign bodies in the river water.

2. if there is a small foreign body blockage, and the location of the blockage is not too deep, we can try to use the wire to the induction ring copper pipe to hook out the debris inside.

3. When encountering the situation that scale and other oxides block the induction ring, we can inject dilute sulfuric acid to produce chemical reactions between oxides and dilute sulfuric acid to eliminate scale. Don't worry about the induction coil. Copper doesn't react with dilute sulfuric acid.

With these methods, we can solve the blockage. There is no harm to the induction coil and the use of the furnace. This can be used for reference if the blockage appears again. If it doesn't work, you can contact us for help.

This is our knowledge of the induction coil for the melting furnace.

Must be in the process of daily use, more inspection, frequent replacement, and timely treatment of safety hazards, so as to avoid serious accidents, which can also improve the efficiency of induction furnaces.
