What problems does magnetic induction heating solve?
Talking about bolt heating on compressor, turbines and other components, which are involved in high power generation, the use of a tightening machine could be the best solution possible. This bolting system relies on magnetic induction and is applied on hollow bolts and not only. It can be used on Nuts too. Power Gen applications usually need highest level of heating power, without compromise the threaded parts.
Which obsolete methods are substituted?
This system replaces the more traditional and dangerous resistance heating methods, which expose operators to great risks of burns and permanent damage. Operate with this magnetic induction system so as not to have hot parts in contact with the operator. The individual hot parts are some sections of the bolts that you intend to tighten or unblock. These types are selected together with the customer so as not to cause any type of damage to the thread, a very delicate part on which special attention must be paid.
How does it work?
The system is based on a very simple functioning system. A small unit equipped with an internal cooling system generates a magnetic field via an inductor. The generated magnetic field produces the heating effect. The heat is necessary in order to perform the detachment of the linkage easily without damaging the sensitive parts involved as shown in the adjacent diagram.
How is this machine built?
This tie rod warmer machine is composed of a central unit, connected directly to the head, to which the inductor is then connected. The latter can be linear or annular depending on the application that is requested. In particular, it is possible to build inductors of any size, in order to accommodate any type of request.
The machine is equipped with a truly practical control panel . On the control panel there is a color display which makes the use of this machine very simple and intuitive.
In fact, all the steps necessary to complete the tightening in short time are listed.
We are talking about an all-in-one bolt heating machine.
The real revolution of this heating device is the possibility of having it all in one. There is therefore no need for large external cooling systems, as the machine is already equipped with its own cooling system. The tank, in which running water is inserted, is necessary to complete a long working period without interruptions. Although the heating effect of the machine is intense, the inductor maintains a body temperature even after several hours of use.
