3 3 Introduction Core Type Coreless Type Fig 1 – Core and Coreless Type of Induction Furnace Electric Induction Furnace

4 4 Operating Principle of Coreless Induction Furnace  Electromagnetic induction  Connect to a source of AC  Create thermal energy  Melt the charge  Stirring action caused by molten metal Fig 2 - Simplified Cross Section of Coreless Induction Furnace

5 5 Important Role of Water Cooling Fig 3 - A Sample Induction Coil with Cooling Water  Water is vital to be success.  Need high water quality.  Flow velocity of all water circuit should be monitored.  Cooling water supply temperature should not be below 25°C.  Upper limit of leaving the coil should be no more than 70°C.  If too cold water is allowed, condensation may be formed.

14 14 Cooling Pond Performance The results corroborate the fact that the most important variable on cooling pond performance is pond surface area itself, but not is volume.

15 15 Conclusion  Cooling system is the important part of coreless induction furnace.  Cooling ponds are one of the economically competitive alternatives for removing of heat from induction furnaces.  The most important influence factor on the cooling pond configurations is pond surface area.
