Power to 50kW: Operation from 5 kHz to 15 kHz

World-class Induction Heating Systems

EKOHEAT induction heating systems for 5-15 kHz range provide reliable and repeatable solutions for heating with large coils or for heating larger parts. Among the many typical applications are heating of hard-to-couple parts, deeper heat penetration, crystal growing, heat treating steel, preheating for forging of steel, aluminum, copper or brass, and melting in crucibles.

With the versatile EKOHEAT power control system you get rapid tuning, efficient and precise heating of your parts, power control within 0.2% resolution and an easy-to-use, easy-to-read front panel. Remote control is accomplished with 0-10V, 4-20mA inputs, RS485 serial port, 24V controls and remote E-Stop input so integration with your automated production lines is easy.

EKOHEAT technology improves return on investment by reducing your energy usage compared to gas-fired and resistive heating techniques. Flameless, non-contact induction heating minimizes energy waste by focusing energy only on the part and zone to be heated. With very efficient power conversion and a power factor greater than 0.9, utility demand charges are reduced, lowering monthly energy bills. EKOHEAT systems are designed for efficient
use of cooling water, further lowering your operating costs.

This is a water-cooled system, requiring connection to a heat exchanger or other means of dissipating heat.
