Induction Heating Machine Selection

There are many factors which have to be considered, while selecting Induction Heating Machine. In addition, magnetic properties (the relative permeability), electrical properties (resistance) and thermal properties (conductibility) of the parts to be heated with the temperature and the type of inductor (geometric, type of conductor, technology), and the impedance of the load also changes accordingly, which requires choosing the right power source in terms of the "impedance range", that should be as wide as possible.

The other factors while selecting Induction Heating are,

  • Power of the system
  • Frequency of the system
  • Design of the work coil or the antennae

Power of the system:

Power of the Induction Heating is the output power concentration or density of heat towards any metallic surfaces, higher the power faster the heating cycle which in turn save process time.Magnetotherm provide Induction heating Equipment with power ranges from 1kW to 100kW.

Frequency of the system:

In Induction Heating, thereby increasing the frequency of operation penetration of heat towards the center/core and the surface of metal, which determines the 'Depth of Penetration'. Magnetotherm Induction Heating Equipment are categorised based on below mentioned Frequency range

  1. Medium Frequency Induction Heating ‐ 1 kHz to 20 kHz
  2. High Frequency Induction Heating ‐ 30 kHz to 80 kHz
  3. Ultra High Frequency Induction Heating ‐ 100 kHz to 500 kHz.
