ISC2 Linear Induction Heating System

ISC2 Linear Induction Heating System

The ISC2 Linear Induction Heating System is an advanced induction heating system cures side-seam coatings, powder or liquid on three-piece welded cans.

The ISC2 Linear Induction system is air-cooled – it does not require elaborate water-cooling as with other induction heating systems. It incorporates a rugged digital power supply with extensive power line protection and line filtering to protect the induction system and other electric power consuming devices in the plant. Easy to operate and install, the ISC2 system enables conversion from gas burner to induction in short time and is configurable to line speed by adding heating modules for line speed increases.

Features and Benefits

  • Significantly lowers operating costs and maintenance requirements.
  • Does not create greenhouse gasses (such as NOx or COx emissions from the heating system, which are restricted and regulated in many countries).
  • Provides fast heating of metal – over 100° C temperature rise within one second.
  • Safer than gas heating – induction does not use explosive fuel for heating.
