What parameters do I need to provide when buying an induction heating furnace?
1. Determine the material of the heated metal
induction heating furnace is metal heating equipment, which can heat similar metal materials such as steel, iron, gold, silver, alloy copper, alloy aluminum, stainless steel, etc. However, due to the different specific heat of various metal materials, when determining the parameters of induction heating furnace , First of all, it is necessary to determine the metal material to be heated.
2. Determine the heating temperature of the heated metal material
A very important parameter of the induction heating furnace is the heating temperature. The heating temperature is different for different heating purposes. The appropriate heating temperature should be selected according to the heating process requirements. For example, the heating temperature for forging is generally 1200 °C, the heating temperature for heat treatment and tempering is 450 °C–1100 °C, and the heating temperature for casting and melting is about 1700 °C.
3. Determine the size of the heated metal workpiece
The weight of the metal workpiece is also closely related to the heating of the metal workpiece by the induction heating furnace. The weight of the metal workpiece has a certain relationship with the heat absorbed by the metal workpiece. It needs to be heated to different temperatures in a unit time. The workpiece with high temperature requires the heating of the induction heating furnace. Power should be large.
4. Determine the productivity of the induction heating furnace
Among the parameters of the induction heating furnace, the productivity is also the most important heating parameter. The production quantity per year, month or shift is also determined by the production capacity of the induction heating furnace.
5. Summary of induction heating furnace parameters:
The parameters required when the induction heating furnace is used for forging heating: heating material, workpiece dimensions, workpiece weight, heating temperature, heating efficiency, feeding method, temperature measurement method, cooling method, transformer capacity and number of phases, floor space and venue conditions.
The parameters required when the induction heating furnace is used for casting and smelting: heating material, furnace body capacity, tilting furnace method, melting temperature, production efficiency, furnace body material, cooling method, feeding method, dust removal method, intermediate frequency power supply requirements, transformer Capacity, footprint and site conditions
