Description

Installation of an induction furnace. Did you know that induction technology can be used to heat metals (brazing, finishing, surface treatment, assembling) by exposure to a magnetic fields of a given current (kW) and frequency (kHz)?

Area of activity

  • Conductive-metal (steel, aluminum, copper and cast iron) processing plant

Total
financial assistance $20,940

Project details

Measures implemented Financial assistance
Installation of an 80-kW (10 kHz) induction furnace $20,940
Total $20,940
*Figures are rounded. Amounts vary between 15% and 30% of the cost of equipment, depending on system specifications (kW, kHz).

Benefits of measure and Program

  • Energy savings (heat generated directly and quickly in materials being processed)
  • Higher quality (more efficient, better-controlled heating)
  • High thermal output (up to 80% greater than conventional technologies)
  • Easy to estimate financial assistance with the OSE tool [EXE 11.4 MB – in French only]
    • Indicate type of metal, current and frequency installed
