EKOHEAT 300 kW, 375 kW & 500 kW VPA induction heating systems

Power to 500 kW
Operation from 2 kHz to 6 kHz
World-class Induction Heating Systems

EKOHEAT 300 kW, 375 kW & 500 kW VPA induction heating systems for the 2 to 6 kHz frequency range provide reliable and repeatable solutions for heating with large coils or for heating larger parts. Typical applications include heating parts that require deeper heat penetration, heat treating steel, preheating for forging of steel, aluminum, copper or brass, and melting in crucibles

Versatile

♦ Efficient heating of many part geometries, sizes and compositions
♦ Multiple capacitor configurations
♦ Multiple tap transformer configurations
♦ Voltage or Power control
♦ Repeatable, reliable heating, agile frequency tuning
♦ Through-Curie heating
♦ Movable workhead; up to 30m (100’)
♦ Sub-second to continuous cycle times
♦ Remote operation or logging with RS485 port
♦ Accepts international AC line voltages

Easy to Use

♦ User-friendly operator front panel controls
♦ System configuration from front panel
♦ Cycle timer, peak and short-cycle data capture
♦ 10 ten-step heating profiles
♦ Overload-tolerant output management
♦ 5-language display suite (EN, ES, FR, DE, IT)
♦ System Diagnostics from the front panel

EKOHEAT is CE marked and manufactured at our IS0 9001:2015 certified facility.

With the versatile EKOHEAT power control system you get rapid tuning, efficient and precise heating of your parts, power control within 0.2% resolution and an easy-to-use, easy-to-read front panel. Remote control is accomplished with 0-10V, 4-20mA inputs, RS485 serial port, 24V controls and remote E-Stop input so integration with your automated production lines is easy.

EKOHEAT technology improves return on investment by reducing your energy usage compared to gas-fired and resistive heating techniques. With very efficient power conversion and a power factor greater than 0.9, utility demand charges are reduced, lowering monthly energy bills. EKOHEAT VPA systems are designed on a host/client principle so you can add additional power should your process require it in the future.

A separate cabinet houses the resonating capacitor bank, available in several different sizes to meet customer-specific applications. The workhead may be placed up to 30 meters from the power supply. Alternatively, the resonating capacitor may be mounted in an extra bay to locate it with the power supply.

This is a water-cooled system, requiring connection to a heat exchanger or other means of dissipating heat.
