Pipe Manufacturer Orders Induction Heating System
Ambrell installed an EKOHEAT 250-kW/10-kHz induction heating system for an oil-industry pipe manufacturer. The customer will use the system to remove coatings from pipes ranging from less than 1 foot to 3 feet in diameter. The manufacturer was using a lower-power induction heating system that was unable to remove coatings as quickly as needed. The Ambrell Applications Lab ran a Lab Service Request (LSR) and determined that a 250-kW/10-kHz system would heat the pipe to temperature (400°F) in the targeted time, enabling the client to increase production.
