A new rammable conductive lining opens up new applications for induction heating systems and materials and allows extension of the working temperature of existing applications.
Rammable conductive lining (RCL), a new patented concept in materials technology for induction heating systems, is an in-situ rammable, conductive carbon/ceramic lining material (Fig. 1) that can couple with the induction field in the unfired state. This capability allows it to be fired in-situ without emission of noxious fumes, without the need to pre-condition the lining, without thermal shock issues and without degradation of the lining during use through oxidation (Fig. 2).
