1-Coreless induction furnace, The heart of the coreless induction furnace is the coil, which consists of a hollow section of heavy duty, high conductivity copper tubing which is.

In today's coreless induction melting systems, water is critical to the cooling of power supplies and furnaces. Operating at increased voltages with high energy levels, melt systems require water-cooling to ensure that the furnace components remain at their optimum operating temperature.

The coreless induction furnace is considered as the most popular type of the induction furnaces because of its suitability for all metal industries[1]. The coreless induction furnace is a simple unit consisting of a helically wound coil surrounding a refractory crucible containing the molten charge and connected to an alternating excitation.

The approximate power consumption of these furnaces is about kWh per tonne of metal induction furnaces have largely been of the high frequency type, the frequency of current ranging as high asHz.

However, medium frequency or main frequency induction furnaces, which have proved ideal for melting. Induction furnaces are ideal for melting and alloying a wide variety of metals with minimum melt losses, however, little refining of the metal is possible.

There are two main types of induction furnace: coreless and channel. Coreless induction furnaces. The heart of the coreless induction furnace is the coil, which consists of a hollow section.

The deposits entrap metal that superheats, causing penetration and even refractory melting. Coreless furnaces can build up in the midcoil area to the extent that the entire lower crucible becomes bridged. A similar scenario results in channel furnaces when the throat becomes clogged, bridging the inductor to the body of the furnace.

An induction furnace is an electrical furnace in which the heat is applied by induction heating of metal. Induction furnace capacities range from less than one kilogram to one hundred tonnes, and are used to melt iron and steel, copper, aluminum, and precious metals.
