Compact 1" Levitation Melting System - EQ-SPG-6VMS

In stock
Item Number: SPG6VMS
EQ-SPG-6VMS is a vacuumable levitation melting system with1”. quartz tube for exploring new generation metallic alloy. Such advanced system equips with 6KW ultra high-frequency induction heater and special developed helical conical coil to suspend conductive metals up to 10g, such as Al, Mg, and Cu, etc. The metal is then melted by magnetic vortex within a vacuum-sealed quartz tube. The conductive workpiece is levitated, melted & untouched by the crucible during the process, and thus reduce the contamination to the minimum. Vacuum pump and recirculating water chiller are included for immediate use.

  • This system is suitable for Al, Mg, Copper and its alloy with weight <10g。
  • Please click here to learn how to setup crucible for melting
  • Attention: A pressure regulator must be installed on your input gas tank ( click picture below to review ) and have the output gas pressure set below 3 PSI at all times. Gas pressure exceeds over 3 PSI may cause irreversible damage to the furnace chamber.  
  • Never heat the furnace without flowing gas.  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 )
