2000C Max. Economic Induction Melting-Casting System - IMCS-2000


Please email for lead time
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. 

SPECIFICATIONS:
Power Requirements

  • Input Voltage (± 10%): 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: Ø320 mm × 320 mm H
  • 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 crucible during melting (Pic 2-4)
  • The mechanical stirring function is optional (Pic. 5)
  •  Pic 1  Pic. 2 Pic. 3Pic. 4   Pic. 5

  • Optional copper casting mold is also available.
Pressure Gauge
Vacuum pressure gauges
  • IMCS-2000 can work both under high vacuum and positive pressure up to 5 psig. 
  • Corrosion-proof Capacitance Diaphragm Gauge with ceramic coated sensor head is included with a wide measure range (3E-5 ~ 1013 torr)
  Induction Heating

    

           Coil 1: Ø72 OD × Ø62 ID × 80 H mm;
           Coil 2: Ø102 OD × Ø92 ID × 100 H mm
  • No temperature controller in the standard package. It is easy to determine melting status by naked eyes.

  Temperature control (Optional)
