The announcement explains how Thermo International’s induction heating methods save valuable time for customers, offering rapid heating to reduce production line delays. The company’s proprietary portable induction machine features a specially designed internal coil that can reach temperatures of up to 2500 degrees Fahrenheit within 30 to 90 seconds.

Induction heating works by harnessing electromagnetism to heat a conductive material – most commonly metals. By running alternating currents through an induction coil, looped electromagnetic fields are created which in turn move and heat the molecules of the workpiece.

The method was first discovered in the 1830s but found wider application in the 20th century, going on to form an essential part of the war effort in the 1940s.

Induction heating technology finds application in the removal of old boiler tubes in power plants. These tubes degrade and corrode over time and need to be replaced. Previously, heating torches were used to cut the tube which was then chiseled out of position. This process was time-consuming and often resulted in damage to the tube sheet. Thermo International offers a more efficient and less damaging alternative, using its induction machine to rapidly heat the tube, causing it to shrink. The tube, while still hot, is then removed using a hydraulic device.
