Heat an Inconel sphere to 482◦C (900◦F) in 2 minutes and 30 seconds using induction heating.
Inconel sphere with top and side openings
Temperature indicating paint.
Temperature: 482◦C (900◦F)
Power: 2.05 kW
Time: 2 minutes 30 seconds
- Heat the sphere with the side opening facing outward for 2 minutes
- Rotate the sphere so that the side opening is facing inward and heat for 30 seconds.
Results and Conclusions:
Heating an Inconel sphere to 482◦C (900◦F) without overheating the front of the sphere is possible with a C coil. The part must be heated with the side opening facing the open end of coil for an average time of 2 minutes. The sphere must then be rotated and heated for another 30 seconds to achieve uniform heating.
