Vacuum Induction Melting Furnace

High Temperature Vacuum Induction Melting Furnace, Medium Frequency up to 2000℃

This vacuum induction melting furnace adopts the theory of medium frequency induction heating and builds a high vacuum system so that the metal can be melted under a high vacuum situation. This furnace is widely used in many kinds of research and production, such as nickel and special steel, precision alloy, activity metal, high temperature alloy, magnet material, etc. Also suitable for the vacuum precision cast of small parts.

  • Adopt IGBT or KGPS medium frequency power supply, the max temperature is 2000℃.
  • The vacuum system is composed of a mechanical pump, roots pump, and diffusion pump, the max vacuum level is 7×10^(-3)Pa.
  • The alloy feeder is built inside. The material can be fed into the melting crucible by operating the feeder handle.
  • The furnace cover is equipped with an observation window, easy to observe the performance of the furnace.
  • An induction heater consists of a rectangular copper tube, through the two mating nuts fixed on the electrode, easy to disassemble.
  • The crucible could be placed inside the inductor. The crucible material should follow the melt alloy type.

2 vacuum induction melting furnaces were delivered to our European customer in August 2022.

Furnace Structure

Vacuum Induction Melting Furnace -2
Vacuum furnace shell●  Furnace Shell is a vertical cylinder with double layer water-cooling, 304 stainless steel inner was mirror polished; the outer rolled by carbon steel.

●  Double layer water-cooling arched furnace cover. Equipped with two tension springs, used to balance the weight. You can open the cover easily. When it’s locking, two tension springs can also provide furnace cover airtight pressure to ensure good sealing.



●  The electrode is located in the left side of the furnace shell. It can work as a power supply for induction heating electrodes, and as a fulcrum of induction heater and Crucible.

●  Electrodes mounted on Sealed bearing, when needed tilting crucible, worker can operate the handle to pour the liquid steel.

Alloy feeder●  Alloy feeder is located in the center of the cover. Inside the feeder is divided into six cubicles (material of one cubicle is placed in the tipping bucket), the material can be fed into the crucible in the vacuum or protective gas.

●  When turning the feeder hand wheel every 60 degrees, there is one cubicle material fall into the tipping bucket inside the furnace cover.

●  Feeding tipping bucket is equipped with damping plate to prevent materials falls too quickly. When in use, gently shake the joystick (outside the furnace cover), you can control the speed and quantity of the material fall into the crucible

Observation window

●  The furnace cover is equipped with an observation window, easy to observe the performance of the furnace.

●  Active shutter is installed on the observation window, preventing glass from burning broken and getting dirty by steam accumulation of metal.

●  Shutter moves away shortly only when observing, controlled by the handle outside the furnace cover.

Induction heater

Induction heater

●  Induction heater consists of a rectangular copper tube, through the two mating nut fixed on the electrode, easy to disassemble.

●  Pre-sintering moulding crucible can be placed inside.
You can also make the crucible according to the inductor inner wall. The material of crucible is up to the melting metal.

●  In front of the sensor, at the bottom of the furnace shell (where place the ingot mould), there is a circular pipe. On the pipe, there is a circular shelf to place ingot mould. Normally, ingot mould is placed on this shelf. When you need to cast the slender ingot, the ingot mould will be high, you can remove the shelf and put the ingot mould into the circular pipe, place it on the water-cooling cover. If you have some special needs, you can replace the water-cooling cover into a suitable water-cooling ingot mould room.

Temperature measuringOn right side of the furnace exhaust pipe fitted with a temperature measuring device. When you need to measure temperature, just pull up the spring latch, turn the handle, the thermocouple tip will insert in the liquid metal. Quartz protecting tube for thermocouple prepared by the user.
Medium frequency power supply and Water-cooling●  Medium frequency power supply is a 1500-2500Hz, 50KW thyristor medium frequency equipment. To compensate for low power factor, the system is equipped capacitor.

●  The medium frequency current of furnace was sent to inductor through the outside bus-tie and water-cooled medium frequency cable. Cooling water of medium frequency cable was directed by control valve on the furnace base.

Vacuum system●  Vacuum system directly connect to exhaust port on the furnace shell. The system includes oil vapor diffusion pump, two stage rotary pump, valve, pipeline, etc.

●  The vacuum system has a 0-0.1Mpa pressure gauge, to check the rough vacuum and negative pressure of protective atmosphere.
