induction melting furnace FAQ guide

Why do you need an induction melting furnace?

Induction melting furnace in the foundry industry Induction melting furnaces are ideal for melting and alloying a wide range of metals. All metals either ferrous or non-ferrous products, require melting before they can be formed or produced. There are several reasons why an induction melting furnace is important, the reasons can be found below.
1. Metal Melting to Remove Impurities Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are melted in furnaces before casting. Removing impurities from the molten metal is an important separation process for all casting industries. Certain technologies make use of deoxidants such as silicon or aluminium or addition of magnesium to remove oxygen and sulfur. Improved and cost effective technologies such as SuperbMelt induction melting furnace can perform the function of removing impurities from molten metal.
2. Metal Melting to Make Alloy Making alloys is impossible without going through the process of melting. Most of the metals we use are alloys which are a combination of one metal and one or more metal or nonmetal element. Alloys provide good electrical conductivity, hardness, heat and corrosion resistant. An induction melting furnace helps to combine all these properties of alloy to create metals that are useful for all purposes. There are different machines that can be used to get the pure alloys.
3. Metal Melting for Industrial Casting Many industries and foundries that make use of metals require an induction melting furnace for parts such as automotive parts, construction rods, etc. Metals are first melted before casting them into different shapes and sizes. Industrial induction furnaces are used for industrial melting depending on metal type. Furnaces found in industries are of different sizes, ranging from small ones to larger ones that can melt large tons of metals at once.

How does an induction melting furnace work?

The principle of an induction melting furnace is that a high voltage electrical source from a primary coil induces a low voltage and high current in metals. Induction heating is simply a method of transferring heat energy into metals.
Once molten, the high frequency magnetic field can be used to stir the hot metal., which is useful in ensuring that all alloys are fully mixed. Induction melting furnaces are mostly used in foundries as a better method of melting metals. Metals that are melted in the induction melting furnace have no contact with the furnace. Induction heating makes use of the electromagnetic spectrum below infrared and microwave energy. Heat is transferred to the metal through electromagnetic waves, hence, molten metal is not contaminated.
An induction melting system consists of an induction power supply for converting line power into alternating current and delivering it to a workhead and a coil for generating an electromagnetic field within the coil. The workpiece is positioned in the coil such that this field induces a current in the workpiece, which in turn produces heat.
The features of the induction melting furnace are:
  • An electric induction furnace requires an electric coil to produce the charge.
  • The crucible is made of material that can resist heat and the electric coil itself is cooled by a water system that prevents overheating.
  • Energy is efficient and well controlled during the melting process.
  • The induction melting furnace ranges in size.
  • Foundries are now replacing other furnaces with the induction furnace.
Induction System Work Principle And Application

How to melt different kinds of metals?

Melting metals require a certain degree of heat and the degree of melting varies according to metal types. The easiest and most recent way of melting metal is to apply heat in a small, enclosed vessel that is heated from below.
1. Precious Metals Melting Furnaces
Precious metal mining no doubt requires smelting furnaces for large production. The best melting furnace for precious metals is the precious metals induction melting furnace as against the crucible, cupola and electric arc furnaces.

Melting silver requires a big induction furnace crucible, because when silver starts to melt, it starts boiling. Put the silver into the crucible and put on the melting furnace. Make a mixture of soda and nitrate with equal quantity. Add small amounts of sodium nitrate step by step until you see the silver chloride turns in metal form. When you see all the silver has melted, give it 5 to 10 minutes more then, pour in a mold. When you pour this ingot silver will be settled and a material in glass form be on top.
2. Iron and Steel Melting Furnaces
Induction melting furnaces are the ideal furnaces for melting iron and steel. In a steel induction melting furnace, the steel is placed into a crucible that is surrounded by an electromagnet made of coiled copper. The coil creates a reversing magnetic field that self-stirs the steel. Steel is an important element in construction, weapon, automobile usage, hence, melting is essential. The induction melting furnace lies in the fact the furnace can convert three-phase electric power into one and use it to create electrical energy for melting metals.
Some features of iron and steels melting furnaces include:
  • Low power consumption.
  • Less noise pollution and air pollution.
  • High melting efficiency.
  • Easy to use and manipulate.
  • Only takes up a reasonable amount of space.

3. Copper Melting Furnaces
The electric copper melting furnace for melting copper is usually done in two ways:
Double push up melting furnace: The double push up melting furnace is only applicable for melting copper on a small scale. The double push up furnace makes use of a single shot principle where a small amount of copper is melted at once. The melting time is really short and melting of copper can be repeated over and over.
The second copper melting furnace is the tilting furnace, suitable mostly for melting copper on a larger scale. A ceramic or metal cover is used to prevent melted copper from taking in oxygen.

How do I smelt gold dust, ores and mines to collect gold?

Smelting basically involves applying heat to ore, usually for a chemical change, in order to extract a base metal. The smelting process requires a lot of energy to extract the metal from other elements. Smelting therefore uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to decompose the ore, leaving other elements as gases or slag and leaving only the metal. Smelting process has two main steps:
Roasting: This involves heating the ore in the presence of excess air or oxygen.
Reduction: A reduction environment removes the oxygen atoms from the raw material. This is done by carbon monoxide which is a product of incomplete combustion of coke.
Here is how to smelt gold dust: Rub borax into the induction furnace crucible before adding gold dust. You can mix flux with gold dust before or during melting. Put on your electric melting furnace and set all necessary parameters. Wait for the gold dust to melt. Get your preheated mold ready and pour in the molten gold.

How do I safely melt metal?

In using an induction melting furnace, safety comes first. Even though electric induction melting does not require an open furnace, ensure you put on all safety materials, such as gloves, goggles and protective apron before you begin melting your metals.

How do I smelt iron?

To get iron in the ore, you have to smelt it out. Smelting iron involves heating up ore in a furnace until the metal becomes spongy and the chemical compounds in the ore begin to break down.

How efficient is induction heating?

Induction heating is a highly efficient method of industrial heating. Compared to torch and oven heating, induction offers a number of activities; induction transfers power directly to the part being heated, no ramp up, saves energy, precision, right heating is provided to all parts of the furnace.
Saves Energy: In induction heating, there is minimal wastage of heat, heat is transferred directly to the part being heated. This high efficiency results in significant power saving. Induction heating proves to be a highly efficient method for industrial heating processes.
No ramp up: Ovens need preheating which results in energy and time loss. Ovens are also kept on to prevent waiting due to ramp up, resulting in additional energy expenses. Induction furnace does not waste energy because of absence of preheating.
Work environment: Other heating methods generate unnecessary heat in the working environment, therefore, wasting energy. Induction heating gives a suitable working environment since no heat is wasted.
Precision: Induction delivers power only when it is needed which enhances product quality.

What temperature induction melting furnace could reach?

Induction heating can be as low as 100 degree celsius and can get as high as 3000 degree celsius.
The temperature of an induction melting furnace with graphite crucible is approximately 1600 degree celsius as maximum. That is very suitable for gold and silver smelting. If it is for platinum group metal melting, the required heating temperature reaches up to 2000 Celsius Degrees which could be also realized by superbmelt induction melting furnace easily.
Industrial induction furnaces do not have a limit to the temperature they can melt. However, the materials that contain the heated materials have limitations.

What can I use as a crucible?

The crucibles should essentially be made of materials with a much higher melting point than the material to be melted. Crucibles that can be used for melting differ according to melting temperatures. Furnace crucibles for melting metal come in; quartz crucible and graphite crucible. When melting metal at less than 1600 degrees celsius, a graphite crucible is ideal. Also, when melting metal above 1600 degrees celsius, a quartz crucible should be used. If the melting metal degree is higher than 1600 degrees celsius, the graphite crucible will quickly decompose leading to pollution of metal.

What is the medium frequency of an induction furnace?

The electric induction furnace uses electric current to melt electrically conductive metals. The high frequency used in induction heating applications gives rise to a phenomenon called “skin effect”. This skin effect forces the alternating current to flow in a thin layer towards the surface of the skin-effect. The skin effect increases the effective resistance of the metal to the passage of the large current. Thereby increasing the heating effect caused by the current induced in the work-piece. The utility frequency of a metal furnace can be 50 or 60Hz or 400kHz , mostly depending on the metal being melted.

What is the difference between an electric arc furnace and induction furnace?

The electric arc furnace has an electric arc that generates the heat required for melting the metal. In this furnace, carbon electrodes are used. In practice, electric arc furnaces are used primarily to melt steel scrap for manufacturing new products. While an induction melting furnace uses induction technology with alternating electric currents to achieve the required melting temperature of the metal. Induction furnaces are widely used in industrial induction furnaces because they are high quality and easy to operate.

What is the difference between smelting and melting?

The two concepts sound alike but they are different. Melting is the process of applying heat to liquifying a solid substance. It is the process by which a substance changes from a solid state to a liquid state, in this case, metal. Smelting on the other hand is the process by which a metal is obtained at temperatures beyond the melting point from its ore. In simpler words, melting converts solid substance to liquid while smelting converts an ore to its purest form.
