What is induction heating?
1.1 Induction heating principle
Induction heating, also known as electromagnetic induction heating, is a method of heating conductor materials such as metal materials. It is mainly used for metal melting, heat treatment, welding and forging.
Electromagnetic induction, discovered by Michael Faraday, begins with a coil of conductive materials (such as copper induction coils). When the current flows through the coil, the magnetic field inside and around the coil is generated. The ability of a magnetic field to operate depends on the design of the coil and the amount of current flowing through the coil
The direction of the magnetic field depends on the direction of the current, so alternating current through the coil causes the magnetic field to change direction at the same rate as alternating current. 60Hz alternating current will cause the magnetic field to switch 60 directions per second. The 400kHz AC current will cause the magnetic field to switch 400000 times per second.
When a conductive material (workpiece) is placed in a variable magnetic field (for example, a field produced by AC), a voltage (Faraday’s law) is induced in the workpiece. Induced voltage will lead to electron flow: current! The current flowing through the workpiece will be opposite to the current in the coil. This means that we can control the current frequency in the workpiece by controlling the current frequency in the coil.
When the current flows through the medium, it will cause some resistance to the movement of electrons. The resistance is expressed as heat (Joule heating effect). Materials that are more resistant to the flow of electrons emit more heat when current flows through them, but it is certainly possible to heat highly conductive materials (such as copper) with an inductive current. This phenomenon is very important for induction heating.
All of this tells us that induction heating requires two points:
- Changing magnetic field
- Conductive materials placed in magnetic field.
The induction heating furnace produced by CDOCAST just adopt the electromagnetic induction to generate electric current inside the heated material and relies on the energy of these eddies for heating purposes.
The basic components of induction heating system include induction coil, AC power supply and workpiece. According to the different heating objects, the coil can be made into different shapes. The coil is connected to a power supply, which provides alternating current for the coil. The alternating current flowing through the coil produces an alternating magnetic field through the workpiece, which causes the workpiece to generate an eddy current to heat.
1.2: what is intermediate frequency induction melting furnace?
Medium frequency induction furnace (hereinafter referred to as induction furnace) operating frequency between 50 to 10 Hz, ?the 50HZ ?three-phase power frequency ?alternating current through the SCR rectifier equipment,,It develop into a pulsating DC power supply, and then outputs about 1KHZ AC [medium frequency] electric energy to the furnace body through SCR inversion.When the intermediate frequency current passes through the furnace coil, it converts the electric energy into magnetic energy in the form of magnetic field, that is, alternating magnetic field is produced in the furnace body. When the furnace body loaded the steel , an eddy current is induced in the steel. This eddy current will make the steel temperature rise quickly, and convert the magnetic energy into the thermal energy, thus completing the conversion of electric energy and thermal energy. The Medium frequency induction melting furnace is mainly composed of:
- crucible made of refractory material
- medium frequency power supply,
- induction coil
The ?charged metal material in the crucible is equivalent to the secondary winding of the transformer. When the induction coil is connected to the alternating current power supply, an alternating magnetic field is produced in the induction coil. The induction electromotive force is produced in the charge when the metal charging material in the crucible is cut by the magnetic wire. Due to the formation of a closed loop of the charge material itself, the characteristic of the secondary winding is only one turn and is closed. So the induction current is produced in the charge material at the same time. When the induction current passes through the charge, the charge is heated to promote its melting.
The medium frequency induction furnace adopt the medium frequency power supply to establish the medium frequency magnetic field, causes the ferromagnetic material interior to produce the induction eddy current to heat, achieves the heating material goal. Induction heating is applied in medium frequency induction furnace with 200-2500Hz medium frequency power supply to Melt and heat preservation.
Medium frequency Induction melter is widely used in smelting non-ferrous metals and ferrous metals. Compared with other metal melting equipment, IF induction furnace has the advantages of high thermal efficiency, short smelting time, less alloy element burning loss, wide smelting materials, less pollution to the environment, accurate control of the temperature and composition of molten metal.

Types of metal melting furnaces
2.1:Classification of metal melting furnace
A Metal Melting furnace refers to the facility that melts metal ingots & some scrap metals ,and adding the necessary alloy components, and smelting them into the required alloys by operation such as scrubbling and refining.
According to different heating energy sources, metal smelting furnaces can be divided into three types:
- Fuel heating : (including natural gas, petroleum liquefied gas, gas, diesel oil, heavy oil, coke, etc.) ,the reactive heat generated by comnustion of fuel is used to heat the charged metal.
- medium frequency induction melting machine, alternating magnetic field is produced by alternating current through coil, and the metal in magnetic field is heated by induction current.
- Electric metal melting furnace, the metal is heated by the resistance element ,which is usually applied in non-ferrous metal melting
We choose different furnaces according to the different metals smelted and the final products we want to gain.
2.2 Classification of Metal Melting Furnace
According to different melting metals, the metal melting furnaces can be divided into 3 main types.
- Copper Melting Furnace
- Aluminum melting Furnace
- Steel/Iron Melting Furnace
- Precious Metal Melting Furnace
3.Copper/Brass/Bronze Melting furnace
Copper is a non-ferrous metal that is very closely related to human beings and is widely used.It is used in the fields of electrical, light industry, machinery manufacturing, construction industry, national defense industry, etc., which is second only to aluminum in the consumption of non-ferrous metal materials in China. Copper is a red metal and a green metal. It is said to be a green metal, mainly because it has a low melting point and is easily remelted and re-smelted, so recycling is quite cheap. In ancient times, it was mainly used for the casting of utensils, art and weapons. Copper ores from copper mines are beneficiated to become copper concentrates or ore sands with higher copper content. Copper concentrates need to be refined and melt through melting furnace to become copper products.like copper wire, copper ingot, copper plate..etc
Thus Copper melting furnace plays an important part in the copper refinery industry. There are mainly three types copper melting machine in the market
- natural gas-fired copper melting furnace
- Induction Copper melting furnace
- Silicon Carbide Melting Furnace
3.1 natural gas-fired copper melting furnace
Gas Fired Melting Furnaces-the maximum temperature can reach 2400 deg F. ?Run on natural gas or propane-adjust the gas air mixture accordingly (no orifice to change)., The gas melting furnace is ?clean and safe, which will make the workshop clean and tidy, easy to manage, mainly used for smelting, casting non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, zinc, silver, lead, tin, copper, etc,
Advantages of natural gas fired copper melting furnace:
- High thermal efficiency with low operating cost ,Bigger melting capacity compared with the electric heating crucible furnace compared , high efficiency, low energy consumption, which completely eliminating the cost of replacing the electric heating elements.
- Use high-quality burner, make diesel fuel completely burned, exhaust emissions completely free of pollution, multiple heat flow channel design, make full use of the energy generated by the burner, greatly improve thermal efficiency, energy-saving effect is remarkable
- The Gas copper melting machine is especially suitable for areas with power shortage , so as to avoid the worry of power capacity increase due to the expansion of production.
3.2 Copper induction melting furnace
Induction copper melting furnace is mainly divided into (line-frequence cored induction furnace and medium frequency induction furnace).
The line-frequence cored induction furnace can melt and heat the metal, the heating is evenly with no loss , which is convenient for adjusting the molten metal composition . However,line-frequence cored induction furnace melts cold material at a slow speed, is not conducive to slag formation, and requires a starting block for the start of the cold furnace. The production is not flexible enough, so it is generally used for remelting and heating of metals and alloys. In addition, the power frequency electric furnace has a low power factor, so a large number of compensation capacitors are required, which also increases the space and equipment investment.
Performance difference between intermediate frequency furnace and line-frequence cored induction furnace:
1:medium frequency furnace has higher power density and higher productivity. In other words, the crucible size of the same power medium frequency furnace is only one third of the crucible size of the power frequency furnace.
2:Secondly, the intermediate frequency induction furnace can empty the furnace every time it smelts, so it is easy to change the varieties of the melted metal, which can melt quickly While the power frequency furnace requires some remaining molten metal in the furnace body. that means use the power frequency furnace can only melt one kind of metal.
3:Under the same productivity conditions, the medium frequency induction furnace has a smaller capacity, so it covers a small area, what is more, the medium frequency induction furnace consume less lining materials so has a low operating cost.
4:The reliability of intermediate frequency furnace is higher and the utilization ratio of equipment is improved.
5:Compared with the power frequency furnace, the intermediate frequency induction furnace has less stirring force, means has smaller metal lining erosion and longer lining life.

3.3 Silicon carbide melting furnace
silicon carbide melting furnace is one kind of resistance melting furnace. Resistance melting furnace is an industrial furnace that adopts the electric current to heat the electric heating element or heating medium in the furnace, so as to heat the charged material. It is a heating furnace that uses current to generate heat energy through resistive material.
Resistance melting furnaces are widely used in the mechanical industry for heating metals before forging, heat treatment of metals, brazing, powder metallurgy sintering, calcination and annealing of glass and ceramics, melting of low melting point metals, drying of sand molds and paint coatings, etc.
In general, the electric melting furnace is based on the different temperatures you require to select different heating elements, nowadays the most widely used heating elements is iron-chromium-aluminium wire furnace with heating temperature below 1200, while the silicon carbon rod furnace can be used to 1400 degrees, if higher temperature is required, we suggest the silicon-molybdenum rod, ZrO2 heating elements,, the silicon-carbon rod smelting furnace is most popular in the market with the advantage of simple usage, stable and reliable
The advantages of the silicon carbide melting furnace
- Easy to get high temperature when compared with fuel furnace.
- Can be heated from inside the material to make it warm up.
- Silicon carbide melting furnace is available to use in controlled atmosphere furnace and vacuum furnace.

After melting the scrap copper or brass in the ?smelting furnace, most people will prefer to cast the ?brass rods, brass bars, copper sheet, copper wire ..etc and other products,accordingly, we will choose different continuous casting machine to cast the types of copper products you want , thus ?there are mainly two tyeps of continuous casting machine in the market, horizontal brass continuous casting machine,and upward copper continuous casting machine.
3.4 Horizontal /bronze continuous casting machine
Horizontal /bronze continuous casting machine ?is mainly used for copper brass/bronze rod,pipe, sheet making.The materials can be pure copper/brass/bronze ,scrap copper/brass/bronze and other copper/brass/bronze materials.
The principle of horizontal casting is a melting holding heating furnace with a graphite crucible warmed with very effective graphite immune heating elements heating system with a cooler, together with graphite die and cooler assembly and also go out track with withdrawal equipment as well as cut-off device. Molten metal flows from the crucible right into the graphite casting die which is cooled down with the help of an extremely reliable cooling jacket.
Water-cooled graphite dies are connected horizontally to the holding crucible. Throughout the constant spreading procedure steel moves right into the graphite casting die where it solidifies. The strengthened strands are periodically taken out in a “pull-pause” series through withdrawal equipment. After leaving the graphite pass away, which is housed within the key cooler, the actors strands go through a secondary colder in the form of a water ‘sparge’ which eliminates the excess heat contained in the solidified billet. Water ‘sparge cooling’ past the exit of the die is a lot more thermal efficient compared to utilizing a graphite water-cooled sleeve colder.

4.5 Aluminum/zinc ingot casting machine
Aluminum ingot casting machine were initially established in our own foundry mainly to deal with aluminium. An ingot casting machine needs to be exceptionally well built to make certain long life in a shop environment in addition to being quickly, efficient and 100% reliable. That’s an uphill struggle so we resource only the most effective spreadings and also elements and develop the frames in residence from top quality steel. Our pouring systems have been made to minimise dross development which subsequently significantly improves the ingots produced. A flexible speed system enables the quantity of metal poured into each mould to be properly managed, creating ingots of a consistent weight as well as dimension. As the moulds take a trip up the slope and around the head sprockets they invert, enabling the ingots to drop, aided by two hammers.
There are a number of standard models which generate cones, dices or long bar ingot with ingot production capabilities from 5 to 10 tonnes a hr. Cdocast aluminum ingot casting makers can also be objective developed to satisfy your own factory’s needs.
Steel & Iron melting furnace
Metals are glossy, have good conductivity, thermal conductivity and mechanical properties, usually according to the color and properties of metals and other characteristics, will be divided into ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals two major categories. Ferrous metal mainly refers to iron and its alloys, such as steel, pig iron, ferroalloy, cast iron and so on. Metals other than ferrous metals are called nonferrous metals. Ferrous metals are collectively referred to as iron, chromium and manganese in industry. It also includes alloys of these three metals, especially alloy black metal steel and iron and steel. Nonferrous metals are relative to ferrous metals.
Here are two main types of furnaces for smelting ferrous metals.
1: medium frequency induction furnace
2: electric arc furnace
5.1 Induction furnace for melt steel & Iron
Steel/iron Induction melting furnaces are very popular in steel mills and foundries. They are being used for holding and then smelting ferrous metals, sponge iron, nonferrous and many other steel scraps.They are used to replace cupolas since the cupolas end to emit a lot of dust and other dangerous pollutants.Medium frequency Cast iron melting furnace manufactured by COOLDO, have ideal multiple protection functions – over current;over voltage; insufficient water pressure; high water temperature; low voltage and phase loss. The advantages of our melting?equipment are: high energy savings; low grid impact; high melting rate; small oxidation loss; uniformity of metallic composition; easily?controlled temperature; excellent insulation qualities etc, And there are Types of Melting Furnace Body For your choice as Following.
5.2 Furnace body classification
Steel/iron Induction melting furnaces are very popular in steel mills and foundries. They are being used for holding and then smelting ferrous metals, sponge iron, nonferrous and many other steel scraps.They are used to replace cupolas since the cupolas end to emit a lot of dust and other dangerous pollutants
1. Generally furnace body can be divided into two kinds:
aluminum shell and steel shell. According to the aluminum shell furnace body shape, it can be divided into circular furnace body and square furnace body (commonly known as small furnace)
2. Steel shell furnace general capacity is 0.3T—60T, circular aluminum shell furnace capacity is 0.15T—5T, square aluminum shell furnace capacity is 0.01T—0.15T. The unit capacity is calculated in 7.8 steel density.
3-1. Steel shell furnace mainly comprises a furnace body frame(steel structure)、furnace mouth、operation table、hydraulic cylinder、induction coil、magnetic yoke、bricks, etc. See below:
3-2. Compared with the aluminum shell furnace, steel shell furnace has the following advantages:
① Energy saving 5% per ton
② More strong and long-lasting
③ Pour the molten steel landing position basically unchanged、
④ The induction coil is not easy deformed in the protection of the magnetic yoke.
Circular aluminum shell furnace is mainly composed of aluminum shell furnace body、bricks (up)、bricks(down)、asbestos plate、induction coil、stainless steel screw etc, see below:
The internal structure of square aluminum shell furnace and circular aluminum shell furnace is almost the same ， only different in external shape and tilting device. Circular aluminum shell furnace is widely used in reducer with furnace feet tilting; square aluminum shell furnace is manually tilting in general, hand wheel or lever.
5.3 Water Cooling system for the induction furnaces
The cooling system mainly consists of two parts: power supply water cooling and furnace body water cooling. The power supply part includes various power supply devices in the power cabinet and electric heating capacitor group.
Usually we suggest that the furnace body and power supply adopt independent cooling device. The medium frequency power supply adopts a totally closed water cooling tower and the furnace body adopts open type water cooling tower..
The purpose of adopting two independent cooling devices is to avoid mutual influence.Because the Medium frequency power supply needs low-temperature cooling water (pure water), the outlet water temperature should be controlled within 55 degrees C, but the cooling water temperature of induction coil can be slightly higher, which can improve the thermal efficiency of the furnace, what is more, it can reduce the volume of the cooling device, thereby reducing the cost.

You just need to place the pre-weighted gold/silver grains or powder into our custom-made graphite mould, and then placed inside the Vacuum melting chamber, during the solidification stage the ingot will certainly be cooled off accordingly by the personalized layout water cooling induction coil in the melting chamber.
Throughout the entire casting procedure, the entire melting as well as cooling off process will occurs in a closed chamber, we have layout an automatic program which can vacuum the melting chamber automated, you simply press all-time low of vacuum, the vacuum cleaner process will certainly be automatic done within 5 mins, just what is more, inert gas like Argon or Nitrogen will certainly be filled in the melting chamber which could prevent the silver or gold from Oxidation.
