Magnetic levitation in induction furnaces to reduce contaminants

Cold crucible induction furnaces (CCIF) are widely used in the melting of reactive and pure metals, as they virtually eliminate contamination. During melting, the induction furnace has to simultaneously melt and levitate the molten load in a process where the load’s phase, shape and properties are in flux. To design a cold crucible induction furnace that satisfy these conditions, requires the consideration of the complex interaction of electromagnetic, thermal, hydrostatic and electro-dynamic principles.

Find out more in this white paper how a company overcomes this design challenge.

Electromagnetic simulation software is essential to optimize several key parameters:

  • Generate electromagnetic forces to control the molten load in order to reduce contact with the crucible walls
  • Evaluate the electrical efficiency and load utilization
  • Dramatically reduce the contamination of the load
  • Reduce utility costs

Optimizing an induction furnace using 2D/3D electromagnetic field simulation software

Benefits and advantages:

  • Purity by controlling the melting and levitation process
  • Electrical efficiency, reducing utility costs
  • Load utilization, to reduce waste

Designing and optimizing a foundry melting furnace for reactive & pure metals

Benefits and advantages:

  • Control molten load from contacting the cold crucible walls
  • Lower the electrical power consumption of smelters
  • Realize higher load utilization (nearly 90%)
