Induction heated hot dip galvanizing furnace
The most common application of induction heated furnaces is in molten metal holding applications, typically for foundry use. However, from time to time, such a technology has been also deployed in hot dip galvanizing. Induction galvanizing furnaces are usually mounting large inductors onto the external surface of ceramic kettles.
The main feature of such installations is their capacity to reach very high temperatures in the molten bath (620 C), which is a desirable feature in the galvanization of special alloys or silicon reach steels. Such desirable feature rarely compensates for the intrinsic weakness of the technology. One good example is its inability to melt solid zinc, as well as being scarcely reactive to production peaks, while inductors tend to occupy large spaces around the kettle.
Our extensive technical experience would anyhow allow us to possibly assist customers who would want to adopt this technology, designing and commissioning a proper installation. If no other avenue is possible, we will do our best to propose a lean layout and minimize the typical disadvantages of this technology.
