We are offering Induction Billet Heater to our customers which are made by using a high quality of raw materials. These range of products can be customized as per our valued client specification across the globe.
Induction heating is a non-contact process which uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to produce heat in a workpiece. By placing a conductive material in to a strong alternating magnetic field, electrical current is made to flow in the material, thereby causing joule heating. In magnetic materials, further heat is generated below the curie point due to hysteresis losses. The generated current flows predominantly in the surface layer, the depth of this layer being dictated by the frequency of the alternating field and the permeability of the material.
BENEFITS OF Induction Billet Heater
Unlike a traditional gas furnace the induction system requires no pre-heat cycle or controlled shutdown. The heat is available on demand. In addition to the benefits of rapid availability in the event of a down stream interruption to production the power can be switched off thus saving energy and reducing scaling on the components.
Due to the heat being generated within the component energy transfer is extremely efficient. The Induction Billet Heater heats only the part not the atmosphere around it.
Rapid temperature rise
High power densities ensure that the component reaches temperature extremely rapidly. This results in reduction of scale, surface defects and undesirable effects on the surface metallurgy.
The induction heating process produces extremely uniform consistent heat. This improves accuracy of the forging and can reduce post forging machining allowances and have a positive effect on die life. In conventional heaters i.e gas or coal fired burning losses are much higher may be 5 to 10% depending size of the work piece, but in Induction Billet Heater maximum burning loss is 1%.
