1500ºC Max. Atmosphere Controlled Induction Melting- Granulating/ Casting Furnace ( 5Kg Capacity ) -IMCS-1500G

Please email for lead time
Item Number: IMCS-1500G
IMCS-1500G- is an induction heating system which is capable of auto-melting / casting granulation for various metal alloys up to 5 kg at Max. 1500ºC under Ar gases environment. The furnace can melt and cast bulk metallic material into 1- 6 mm diameter sphere granulation for making alloy mixing by the ball mill or further melting.

Power Requirements
  • Input Voltage: 208 - 240V AC, Three Phases
  • Max. Current: 60A
  • Output:  20 KW
Crucible Chamber

  • One set of standard graphite crucible is included for melting and granulating ( pls click the picture below for dimension)
    • Pic 1:  Graphite Crucible ~ 750 ml for induction melting.
    • Pic. 2: Graphite adaptor with 0.8 mm hole for granulation by quenching into water casting
    • Pic. 3. Graphite rod for switching casting
    • Customized crucible dimension is available upon request at the extra cost

Casting Chamber 

  • Accommodates flasks 5'' diameters x 9" high 
  • Flask is swiveled out from the bottom of crucible chamber to enable easy insertion and removal of flasks
  • Flask is driven by compressive gas > 150 PSI. The compressive air pump is required, but not included.  You may click the link below to order:
Temperature Control
  • Max.Working temperature 1500ºC
  • S-type thermocouple allows the user to closely control and monitor the temperature with the most accurate readings
  • Heating is electronically controlled to minimize temperature overshoot and to hold the set-point temperature stable
  • Bottom-pour design of crucible ensures minimal temperature drop in metal casting during the crucible to flask transfer
Vacuum and Inert Gas
  • Vacuum requirement: 1bar (-29.9" Hg) at sea level
  • Vacuum gauge and handle provide easy monitoring of vacuum pressure
  • Inert Gas Requirement: 5 liters/ minute @ 0.7 bar (10 psi) hi-purity nitrogen or argon
  • Double stage rotary vane vacuum pump is included with this casting system
Water Cooling 
  • 16L/ min water floow
  •  Please click picture below if you need a recirculating water chiller
Warranty One-year limited warranty with lifetime support
Compliance CE certified
NRTL certification is available upon request at extra cost
Application Notes
  • Please clicks here for the melting temperatures of various metals
  • AttentionA pressure regulator must be installed on your input gas tank ( click the picture below to review ) and have the output gas pressure set below 3 PSI at all times after opening the gas tank with the gas maintained in a continuous flowing condition. Gas build up with pressure levels exceeding over 3 PSI may cause irreversible damage to the furnace chamber.  
  • Never heat the furnace while the gas release valve is closed and a positive pressure condition exists within the furnace chamber. The pressure gauge must be used to closely monitor the chamber condition at all times during the heating process; please open the gas release valve immediately once the chamber pressure has reached over 3 PSI to prevent unforeseeable damages.

  • The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
