Induction Heating Steel Pin

Induction Heating Steel Pin For Loosening With RF Induction Heater

Objective Heat steel tie downs on containers to loosen steel pin so pin can rotate
Material Steel tie-down assembly with a 2.5” (63.5mm) dia. flange, 1” (25.4mm) dia. rod and pin ring approx 4” (101.6mm) OD and 0.75” (19.05) thick steel
Temperature 1000ºF (538ºC)
Frequency 282 kHz
Equipment •DW-UHF-20kW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing two 1.5μF capacitors for a total of 0.75μF
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A single turn helical coil is used to heat the assembly. The coil is placed around the pin and power is applied for 120 seconds. After heating, a steel rod is inserted in the pin ring, pressure is
applied and the pin ring spins freely.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Precise and accurate placement of heat without affecting surrounding areas
• Much faster process time, from hours to minutes
• Repeatable and consistent results
• Even distribution of heating
