How Induction Susceptor Heating Works

A susceptor is used for the induction heating of non-conductive materials such as ceramics and polymers. The susceptor is heated by an induction heating system, where conduction transfers heat to the work material. Susceptors are often made out of silicon carbide, molybdenum, graphite, stainless steels and a number of other conductive materials.

Ambrell's induction heating systems have been used for susceptor heating since 1986. Our engineering expertise in induction susceptor heating ensures the best solution for your application. We even offer free applications testing. Check out our susceptor heating applications notes below.

Heating a 4 Tubular Carbon Susceptor to 5400 °F (3000 °C)

A tubular carbon susceptor is held within an atmospherecontrolled quartz chamber. Induction is used to heat the susceptor

Heating graphite susceptor for glass reflow for X-ray tubes

A two turn helical coil is used for heating. Six graphite susceptors are placed in the nitrogen atmosphere with glass discs and a stainless steel holder.

Heating aluminium susceptor for powder expansion

Expand powder into solid form for use in crash helmets

Soldering Co-axial Wire to a Metal Frame

Given the small size of the part and the assembly's geometry, a graphite cylinder was required as a susceptor.

About Induction Heating

Induction heating is a fast, efficient, precise and repeatable non-contact method for heating metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The material may be a metal such as brass, aluminum, copper or steel or it can be a semiconductor such as silicon carbide,carbon or graphite. To heat non-conductive materials such as plastics or glass, induction is used to heat an electrically-conductive susceptor, typically graphite, which then transfers the heat to the non-conducting material.

Induction Heating Work Coils

The work coil is the component in the induction heating system that defines how effective and how efficiently your work piece is heated.
