Melting furnace (induction heating)
No crucible, so
Reduce contamination to the limit
High-purity crystal growing
Floating dissolution is the production method to get the high-purity conductive materials by applying a high-frequency output to a conductive material to perform heating and melting and suspending the conductive material using the frequency and eddy current of a high-frequency induction heating power supply.
Floating dissolution includes cold crucible dissolution and levitation dissolution.
- No crucible, so no impurities are mixed in from the crucible wall.
- No crucible, so cost of consumables reduces.
- No reaction with the crucible material, so fluxes with a wide variety of ingredients and compositions can be used.
- Promote the refining reaction of metals by utilizing the active stirring force of the molten metal by electromagnetic force.
- Easy dissolution of high-purity metals and refractory metals
Cold crucible melt
This melting method has a water-cooled copper crucible inside the work coil, and a conductor is placed in it to heat it.
When the power of high-frequency induction heating is applied to the work coil, an eddy current opposite to that of the work coil is generated in the water-cooled crucible.
The eddy current of the work coil is applied to the conductive material and heating and melting proceed, but the eddy current of the copper rut and the electromagnetic repulsive force of the eddy current of the work coil act to float.
