Report: Inductive melting in steelworks

After the development of induction technology with inverter outputs of over 40 MW for crucible furnaces with capacities of more than 65 t, the induction furnace offers itself as an alternative to the electric arc furnace. Promising results have also been obtained in recent times for the inductive melting of carbon steels. In what follows, the characteristic properties of the induction furnace are first described before some example systems for steelmaking are discussed.
