Atmosphere Controlled Directional Solidification System with Optional Feeding Device - IMCS-1500RC

Please email for lead time
Item Number: IMCS-1500RC
IMCS-1500RC  is an induction melting and continuous casting furnace,  which can cast the rod, plate or wire continuously for various non-ferrous metals and alloys up to 5 kg at Max. 1500ºC under the Ar gases environmentThis device is necessary for wire preparation of metallic wire for AM ( Click here to see details)

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 solidification ( please click the picture below for dimension)
  • Max. melting capacity 5 kg ( Fe based )
  • Max. Melting point: 1500oC  ( 1700oC is available upon request at the extra cost )
  • The continuous casting mechanism is based on sample shape. Uusally 6mm diameter. Please discuss this with our engineer for your application before purchasing it.
  • Casting speed control is available according to customer request
  • The device for sectary feeding of raw material is available upon request at extra cost, which can be used to create the composition gradient rod for high-throughput study of ally phase transition 
Temperature Control
  • Max.Working temperature 1500ºC ( 1700oC is available upon request at the extra cost )
  • B-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 the 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 flow
  •  Please click the picture left to order 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 an extra cost
Application Notes

  • Attention: A 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 )
     900 L x 750W  x 1500 H mm
