Ambrell Induction Heating Solutions was one of the innovative companies at the Electric Power Research Institute’s Electrification 2018 International Conference & Exposition held in Long Beach, California August 20-23, 2018.
PUF’s editor-in-chief Steve Mitnick caught up with diverse companies that have electrification in common. He spoke with Justin Kase, Regional Sales Manager, Ambrell Induction Heating Solutions.
Justin Kase: Today we're going to give you a demonstration on heating a steel tube up to around fourteen hundred degrees Fahrenheit in under twelve seconds.
The beauty of induction heating is, it's instant on, instant off, and the part is heating right now. As you can see, the part is getting to a glowing temperature which is around thirteen hundred degrees.
It's so local. I'm about only two inches away from the heat zone, and I can't feel any heat on my hand. I don't have special hands. If you want, you can feel free to touch it or try it yourselves, but the beauty of induction is you're efficient, you get instant on, you have control of your heat, and it's great for the electrification.
