Ambrell sold two 10-kW, 150- to 400-kHz induction heating systems to a manufacturer of pipe grippers for the oil and gas industry. The heating application involves heating two grippers in one coil. Two grippers, which are steel faces with carbides in place, are placed into the coil. They are heated to 1400°F (760°C) within 90 seconds. The carbides are then pressed into their joints.
The company also ordered Ambrell’s eVIEW temperature monitoring software as well as a temperature controller and optical pyrometer. eVIEW enables the monitoring and tracking of part temperature, power, frequency, coil operating parameters and more. This is ideal for quality control and audits.
