2000ºC Max. Economic Induction Melting-Casting System with Optional Stirring Function - IMCS-2000

In stock
Item Number: IMCS2000
IMCS-2000 is an economic induction melting & casting system that is capable of melting/casting various metal alloys up to 1000g (Fe as reference) at Max. 2000ºC under either high vacuum or Argon gas. 

Power Requirements

  • Power: 208 - 240 VAC, three phases
  • Power for induction heater only: 15 kW (240V 50 A 3p or 208 60 A 3p power outlet is recommended)
  • Three power outlets (single-phase) are built-in for a vacuum pump, water chiller, and spare device. (Additional 3~4 KW or 10 A energy consumption may be needed.)
Vacuum chamber

  • The vacuum chamber is made of stainless steel
  • Vacuum Chamber: Ø315 mm × 315 mm H (inner dimension)
  • One Ø120 mm quartz observation window. 
  • Built-in a rocker arm to rotate crucible and cast into a water-cooled copper or a refractory mold
  • One KF25 and one KF40 vacuum port are built at the back of the chamber (Pic. 1)
  • DN160 ISO-K port is built on the left of the chamber for connection of a turbopump
  • Two KF16 and a KF25 port on the top of the chamber. 
  • The optional secondary material feeder is available, which can feed 3 types of volatile dopants into the crucible during melting (Pic 2-4)
  • The mechanical stirring function is optional (Pic. 5)
