In addition to gas heating creating an uncomfortable work environment, it can also create hot fumes and combustion that can create safety issues within the workplace. Gas heating also creates expensive rates of fuel consumption compared to induction heating, due to its slow time-to-temperature. Hot and cold spots can also be created from gas heating, which can create inconsistency in work.
While the usage of electrical resistance heating has its benefits for the environment, such a method of heating creates a possibly to destroy surrounding insulation. Such insulation, broken down from its original form, can pose a severe health concern if inhaled by those on site. The immense heat created from electrical resistance's external heating creates the possibility for severe burns, unlike that of induction's internal heating.
Our induction furnaces and ovens allow for uniform preheat and stress relief of metals, metals that cannot be heat treated through induction such as aluminum or stainless steel parts. The induction furnace is also used for smaller metal parts being preheated or stress relieved. For example: drill bits, tools and flanges etc. Induction heat-convection ovens/furnaces powered by Miller Electric's ProHeat 35. Read below for key features of our furnaces and ovens.
During the heating process with one of our induction furnaces and ovens, a close compression seal is needed. This seal allows for the proper containment of heat during the induction process. These seals are placed on the bottom of the oven base and in-between the door frames of oven doors to properly protect the insulation gaskets and to trap heat.
