induction heating stainless steel wire cable

induction heating stainless steel wire cable Objective Induction Heat stainless steel cable made from stranded wire with induction for stress relief. Heating is performed while the cable is static to determine the required power needed to meet the customer’s listed production rate of 1,000 ft/hour (305 m/hr). Equipment DW-UHF-4.5KW induction heater Materials • Austenitic stainless … Read more

induction heating steel cable for cutting

induction heating steel cable for cutting with radio frequency heating equipment

Objective Prior to cutting, heat a short section of a hardened steel cable coated with a polyethylene sheathing.
Material Multi-strand braided stainless steel cable 0.5 in. (1.27 cm) OD enclosed within a polyethylene sheathing
Temperature 1800 ºF (982) ºC
Frequency 240 kHz
Equipment • DW-UHF-20kW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing four (4) 1.0 μF capacitors (for a total of 1.0 μF).
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A three-turn helical coil is used to heat the cable in approximately 2 seconds. After the power is turned off, the heat is then transferred to the sheathing.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides a quick, precise repeatable method to reach the high temperature required. It is a very efficient heating method.
