The customer wants to melt 1 kg of copper in 10 minutes. There are many advantages to melting copper using induction heating. Induction melting has the characteristics of fast melting, energy saving, no smoke, and safety. The mini induction melting furnace can be equipped with an infrared thermometer to precisely control the temperature of the copper to prevent the copper metal from being burned due to excessive temperature.

Copper is a purple-red luster metal that is rigid, wear-resistant, has good ductility, solid thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, and corrosion resistance. It is widely used in electrical, machinery manufacturing, construction, transportation, and other industries.

  • Melting point of copper: 1,083 ℃.
  • Density of copper: 8.92 g/cm.

The Process of Induction Melting 1 kg of Copper

  • Melting equipment: mini induction melting furnace.
  • Power: 15 kW.
  • Crucible: pure graphite crucible.
  • Melting time: 5 minutes.

We used a 15 kW high-frequency mini induction melting furnace, pure graphite crucible, and factory water cooling system. It takes 5 minutes for 1kg of copper to melt completely.

Water Cooling System

The induction melting process of 1 kg copper was carried out at FOCO’s induction equipment factory. We used the factory water cooling system.

Customers can use industrial chillers or simple water cooling systems when they utilize mini induction melting furnaces.
