The weight, melting point and specific heat are the requirements on which the technology of melting and hardening of metal materials depends. The weight will determine the size of the furnace needed, the melting point determines the type of furnace, and the specific heat which facilitates melting will determine which of the induction furnace options are needed to perform these specific tasks.
Induction furnaces are available in many sizes to meet the capacity needs of particular metal industries. The melting point will determine whether a coreless induction furnace, a channel induction furnace, or a combination of both options provides the optimal solution for a specific metal industry. All of the different metals and metal alloys have different melting points, and only induction furnaces are versatile enough to accommodate various metal melting applications.
Each and every metal and metal alloy has a particular melting point which it does not share with any other variety of metal. Induction furnaces are able to meet the needs of iron ore, iron, copper ore, aluminum, cast aluminum, all of the different grades of steel including stainless, copper, in addition to other precious metals such as gold and silver, and even scrap metals.
Metal melting is a precise science, and as such it requires precise machinery to achieve optimal results without product waste, or excess energy consumption. Induction technology has propelled the metal industry into a whole new era of efficiency. IGBT technology, not only is the processing of metal a simpler, more efficient and safer process, it also produces virtually no pollutants and offers a safer more comfortable work environment.
This combination of safety, energy efficiency, greener technology and more efficient metal processing options offered by induction furnace technology, presents totally new and better ways for the metal industry to continue providing the metal products which are used in every aspect of construction and manufacturing today.
