How Magnalenz Furnaces Are Different From Others :
Higher Yield: The absence of combustion sources reduces oxidation losses that can be significant in production economics.
Faster Startup: Full power from the power supply is available, instantaneously, thus reducing the time to reach working temperature.
Flexibility: No molten metal is necessary to start medium frequency coreless induction melting equipment. This facilitates repeated cold starting and frequent alloy changes.
Natural Stirring: Medium frequency units can give a strong stirring action resulting in a homogeneous melt.
Cleaner Melting: No by-products of combustion means a cleaner melting environment and no associated products of combustion pollution control systems.
Compact Installation: High melting rates can be obtained from small furnaces. A coreless furnace capable of melting 2,500 lbs./hr. of aluminum has a crucible measuring 3' in diameter by 6' in depth.
Reduced Refractory: The compact size in relation to melting rate means induction furnaces require much less refractory than fuel-fired units.
Better Working Environment: Induction furnaces are much quieter than gas furnaces, arc furnaces, or cupolas. No combustion gas is present and waste heat is minimized.
Energy Conservation: Overall energy efficiency in induction melting ranges from 55 to 75 percent, and is significantly better than combustion processes.
