What is induction melting?
Induction melting is a cost-effective and energy-efficient way to raise the temperature of a metal or ore to its melting point and to hold that temperature to perform metallurgical processes such as smelting, alloying, mixing, and casting.
Benefits of Induction Melting:
- Energy efficiency
- Cleaner technology
- Increased productivity
Two types of furnaces are used in induction melting:
- Crucible induction furnace – it consists of a coil that encircles the crucible
- Channel induction furnace – it consists of one or several basins on which one or several channels passing through a coil are connected
Below are some examples of where induction melting:
