Induction Heating versus Torch Heating

Nov 2, 2015 4:20:14 AM / by Justyna Bakker

Brazing is perhaps our most popular induction heating application, and an application where we consistently see companies moving to induction brazing from using torches as a source of heat. Here are the primary reasons why you may want to consider induction if you’re currently torch brazing, or using a torch for another heating process: 

1. Superior Repeatability

When induction is properly implemented into a process, you can count on the same result every time. A torch sometimes leads to inconsistent results and uneven heating, and the end product is only as good as the operator – if the operator moves on, quality issues may ensue.

2. Faster Heating

Induction typically heats parts to temperature more rapidly than a torch, generating a superior production rate.

3. Process Safety

There is no open flame with induction, resulting in enhanced workplace safety. Additionally, it introduces less heat into the working environment, creating a better environment for workers. 


Induction heating versus other heading methods

The picture above compares induction heating with other heat sources. More transferable heat means that the energy is used and transferred in a localized, precise manner. Induction heating is clearly superior over other heating methods often applied in a production process.

So, in a nutshell, the benefits of induction are a production-boosting speed of heating, less footprint due to a reduced energy use and enhanced workplace safety. In short, induction helps you become  cleaner and greener.

Now, induction heating's optimal use and application depends largely on  expert advise. Are you considering switching from torch or furnace heating to induction?
