MF FURNACE INSTALLATIONS
Higher Yield: The absence of combustion sources reduces oxidation losses that can be significant in production economics.
Faster Startup: Full power from the power supply is available, instantaneously, thus reducing the time to reach working temperature.
Flexibility: No molten metal is necessary to start medium frequency coreless induction melting equipment. This facilitates repeated cold starting and frequent alloy changes.
Natural Stirring: Medium frequency units can give a strong stirring action resulting in a homogeneous melt.
Cleaner Melting: No by-products of combustion means a cleaner melting environment and no associated products of combustion pollution control systems.
Compact Installation: High melting rates can be obtained from small furnaces. A coreless furnace capable of melting 2,500 lbs./hr. of aluminum has a crucible measuring 3' in diameter by 6' in depth.
Reduced Refractory: The compact size in relation to melting rate means induction furnaces require much less refractory than fuel-fired units.
Better Working Environment: Induction furnaces are much quieter than gas furnaces, arc furnaces, or cupolas. No combustion gas is present and waste heat is minimized.
Energy Conservation: Overall energy efficiency in induction melting ranges from 55 to 75 percent, and is significantly better than combustion processes.
DESCRIPTION OF MF INSTALLATIONS
Medium frequency Furnaces operate at frequencies ranging from 150 To 10,000 HZ, such furnaces provide the concentration of high power in small volumes with a definitely higher melt rate.
