Static heat tests: the wire was maintained at a fixed position, under tension, in the coil for all tests. Induction heat was applied until the desired temperature was achieved.
- Cable #2024 can be heated to the specified temperature of 900-950°F at the rate of 1000ft/hr (305 m/hr). Cable #2019 can be heated with the same power supply and coil arrangement at a lower line speed estimated to be 825 ft/hr (251m/hr).
- A system with a higher kW power output can meet the needs of 1000ft/hr (305 m/hr) rates at the higher temperature requirements.
