Description: 0.5T power factor

The power factor of the series intermediate frequency furnace is high: ≥0.9 6 , because all the thyristors in the rectification part of the power supply are in the fully open state , the rectifier circuit is always in the all-on state, and the rising power is realized by adjusting the voltage of the series inverter bridge . Therefore, the entire operation process (including low power, medium power, high power) can ensure that the equipment is always in a high efficiency stage.

Parallel intermediate frequency furnace power factor is low: ≤0. 92 , because all the thyristors in the rectification part of the power supply are in a semi-open state (adding additional compensation according to the requirements of the national grid). The power regulation of the parallel line is adjusted by the rectification conduction angle, so At low power, the power factor of the power system is very low, generally between 40% and 80%; the high harmonics are large and seriously interfere with the power grid .

Sixth , 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace circuit diagram :


Seven , the reason for choosing 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace :

(1)        The whole machine can realize fool-like operation to avoid accidents caused by operational errors.

(2)        The rectification inverter is completed by a power potentiometer and buffers the soft start. Self-judgment of the load state, if the load is short-circuited or open circuit, the zero-impact, micro-current lock-controlled inverter output can be used to avoid further expansion of the fault.

(3)        High power factor, low harmonic interference. The power factor of the whole machine is comφ≥0.9 6 , no need to configure reactive power compensation and harmonic elimination device , and reduce investment in construction .

(4)        The inverter pulse width and commutation dead time can be flexibly adjusted to suit various load frequencies.

(5)        High start-up success rate : 100% start-up for any load condition , with high load adaptability: high power factor full load output even in the cold furnace (cold) state.

(6)        Extremely high power saving effect: the relative parallel resonance rate is 20~30% , the reason is as follows

(1) , the turn-off loss is small. Since the series resonance is a natural commutation, there is no commutation overlap angle, so there is no turn-off loss;

(2 ) High-voltage characteristic series resonance belongs to voltage resonance, the inductor voltage is Q times of the output voltage , and 1500V-4000V high voltage can be obtained without double voltage or transformer boosting . Each current of the inverter output flows through the inductive load. Relative parallel

Vibration, the channel current is 2-3 times smaller . This high voltage, low current characteristic results in a significant reduction in tank losses.

(3) Low-reactive loss series resonance belongs to voltage resonance, DC filter adopts capacitive filtering. When normal operation, the rectifier bridge is in full open state, and the power factor of the grid reaches cosφ≥0.9 6 or more, plus low harmonic loss and long electrical efficiency. Above

Parallel resonance.

u High compatibility: The board reserves IGBT drive interface, temperature control interface, remote control interface and online blocking protection interface. The IGBT driver board can directly drive the IGBT module; the temperature controller (or computer) can realize programmable temperature control.

u Good environmental performance: Relative to parallel resonance, the sound of the whole machine is smooth and brittle, no clutter noise, and the IF harmonics of the power grid are extremely small. Eight , what is the choice of 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace body structure ?

0.5T series IF furnace furnace furnace shell consists of four parts, an induction coil, lining, etc. gearbox tilting furnace furnace structure wherein selecting two ways: to supply aluminum to melt reducer tilting furnace configuration mode The furnace is commonly known as the aluminum shell furnace. The inductionmelting furnace of the steel structure with the hydraulic cylinder as the tilting furnace is commonly called the steel shell furnace. The steel shell furnace is a steel structure , and the aluminum shell furnace shell material is an aluminum alloy . Because of the volume of the 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace , aluminum shell furnace and steel shell furnace have customers to choose, and domestic steel shell furnaces are mostly.

Nine, customers need to provide any information to the vendor before buying 0.5T series IF furnace?

1. 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace should have layout space, need to provide the area and layout of the plant

2. The customer needs to provide the capacity of the transformer, the magnitude of the incoming line voltage, and the frequency of the incoming line voltage.

3. The medium frequency induction furnace needs water cooling equipment, and the configuration of the 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace contains water cooling equipment.

4. The structure of the medium frequency induction melting furnace has a steel shell furnace body and an aluminum shell furnace body, and the customer needs to specify the furnace body structure.

5. The power supply of the medium frequency induction melting furnace is the intermediate frequency power supply. The line structure of the intermediate frequency power supply is divided into the inverter parallel and the inverter series structure. The inverter series structure is energy-saving, the power factor is 0.98 , and the line is stable. The inverter parallel structure is a parallel type with a power factor of 0.92 , which requires the customer to specify the line structure.

Ten , how to reduce the power consumption of the 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace ?

Properly increase the power supply. Accelerate the melting speed. Do not use hot metal in each furnace, as long as it is a little bit beneficial to the melting of the charge. Drain the metal material, try not to let it get stuck, can melt down smoothly, pay special attention to the low melting point specification of pig iron, etc. It should be arranged in the vicinity of the induction coil. The induced current is larger and melts faster, and the drop is fast, which is conducive to the formation of the molten pool. Further melting the entire charge. The bobbin-type charge should not be cut because its induced current is continuous, which is conducive to power improvement.

Eleven , how to improve the melting speed of 0.5T series intermediate frequency furnace ?

1.   Increase the power of the intermediate frequency induction melting furnace intermediate frequency power supply.

2.   Choose a reasonable charge size and the correct feeding method.

3.   Appropriate molten iron outlet temperature.

12. What should I pay attention to in the operation of the intermediate frequency furnace ?

The phase-frequency AC power is converted into DC power, and after the inverter circuit output is converted into a single-phase AC power, the metal is heat-treated according to the principle of electromagnetic induction. However, in order to ensure that the intermediate frequency furnace can operate efficiently, it is necessary to carry out safe operation. The following is a detailed description of how to carry out safe operation.

1 , precautions before opening the furnace

The intermediate frequency electric furnace must check the electrical equipment, the water cooling system, the inductor copper tube, etc. before the furnace is opened. Only when these several equipments are in good condition can the correct method of safe operation of the intermediate frequency furnace be analyzed.

IF forging and casting furnace is a thermal processing apparatus for the inverter unit of several parts, the furnace and furnace control other components of the furnace by three, to ensure the safety of the heat treatment, or prohibiting the opening of the furnace; specifically determining The person responsible for power transmission and opening, and the responsible person shall not leave the post without authorization. During the work, the external condition of the sensor and the cymbal must be supervised to prevent people from touching the sensor and cable after power transmission, which affects the normal operation of the intermediate frequency electric furnace. Work or a safety accident.

2 , precautions after opening the furnace

After the intermediate frequency furnace is opened, during the charging, the inside of the furnace should be inspected to avoid mixing with flammable and explosive materials. In order to prevent the occurrence of the capping phenomenon, it is strictly forbidden to directly add the cold material and the wet material in the molten steel, and after the molten liquid is filled to the upper portion, the bulk material should not be added ; in order to avoid the explosion accident, it is necessary to ensure the pouring place and the furnace. There is no water in the front pit, no obstacles . In the pouring, two people need to cooperate, and the remaining molten steel can only be dumped at the place where it is made, and cannot be dumped anywhere.

3 , precautions during maintenance

When maintaining the medium frequency electric furnace, the internal frequency generator room should be kept clean and the flammable and explosive materials should not be stacked. Repair the furnace with excessive melt loss in time, and avoid the incorporation of iron filings and iron oxide in the furnace to ensure the compaction of the crucible.

What are the main factors that cause the accident in the intermediate frequency furnace ?

13. The causes of the explosion of the intermediate frequency furnace are:

1 . The presence of moist materials in the charge causes a steam explosion.

2 . Temperature sampling or lack of operating skills when adding alloys, causing splashes of molten metal.

3 . Injecting large metal materials into the furnace causes the molten iron to splash.

4 . Unreasonable feeding system leads to bridging.

5 . Failure to escape outside the safety line resulted in injury.

6 . Contact with the power conductor, safety interlock control failure or contact with incompletely discharged capacitors, etc., resulting in shock or death.

7 . Lack of proper safety training.

Fourteen, the main points of medium frequency furnace steel

1 , the task of steel

The main raw material for melting is scrap steel and a part of pig iron. The purchased scrap has more rust, muddy sand and other dirt, and the content of sulfur and phosphorus in the steel is also high. The task of the steel is to smelt the raw materials of the above conditions into high-quality molten steel with low gas content, high inclusion content, qualified components and temperature. Specifically, the basic tasks of the steel are:

( 1 ) melting solid charge (cast iron, scrap, etc.);

( 2 ) making the elements such as silicon, manganese and carbon in the molten steel reach the specification components;

( 3 ) removing harmful elements such as sulfur and phosphorus and reducing their content below the specified limit;

( 4 ) removing gas and non-metallic inclusions in the molten steel to make the molten steel pure;

( 5 ) adding alloying elements (melted alloy steel) to meet the requirements;

( 6 ) The molten steel is superheated to a certain temperature to ensure the need for pouring;

( 7 ) In order to increase production and reduce costs, it is necessary to rapidly reduce steel;

( 8 ) Casting into a good casting.

2 , the method of steel

There are many methods for chemical steel, mainly including induction furnace steel, open hearth steel, and electric arc furnace steel.

Electric arc furnaces and induction furnaces commonly used in cast steel workshops. They have looser requirements on raw materials, higher quality of molten steel, and the steelmaking cycle is suitable for the characteristics of cast steel production. It is convenient to open and stop the furnace, and it is easy to coordinate with the progress of the process of molding and boxing. Organize production. In addition, the equipment for electric furnace steel is relatively simple, with less investment, and the infrastructure construction speed and capital recovery are fast.

In recent years, induction furnace steel has gradually developed. Induction furnace steel process is relatively simple, and the quality of molten steel can be guaranteed. Many factories use induction furnace steel to cast small castings, especially in investment casting foundries, and widely use induction furnaces to melt molten steel.

In the heavy machinery factory, flat furnace steel has been used so far. The capacity of the open hearth furnace is generally larger than that of the electric furnace. The flat steel can be used to produce a large amount of molten steel at one time, which is suitable for pouring large and complex heavy castings.However, the cycle of open hearth steel is long, and the time for producing a furnace steel generally takes more than six hours. The open hearth structure is large and complex, the output is low, and the quality of the molten steel is not as good as that of the electric furnace, so its development is greatly limited. In some countries, new open hearths are no longer built.

In recent decades, pure steel top-blown converters have been widely used in the steel industry to convert steel. This method of steelmaking is fast, high in productivity, and the quality of molten steel is also guaranteed. This type of furnace is more suitable for steel ingot production.

With the development of production and science and technology, new steelmaking methods for DC arc furnaces, vacuum induction furnaces and refining equipment outside the furnace have emerged, the quality of molten steel has been greatly improved, and the quality of castings has been greatly improved.

What are the factors that affect the energy consumption of the intermediate frequency furnace?

  Fifteen, the factors affecting the energy consumption of the intermediate frequency furnace are mainly the following four points:

1 , power supply

The frequency density configuration of the intermediate frequency furnace is high. The configuration is high, the melting speed is fast, and the energy saving effect is good. Whether the intermediate frequency furnace can maintain high power and continuously send power to the furnace will affect the energy consumption; the intermediate frequency furnace power supply line is disorderly, which will affect the power processing capacity, resulting in unstable power, low power conversion efficiency, and influence energy. Consumption.  

2 , the melt

The cleanliness of the surface of the charge, such as 5 % impurities, will consume 5 % of the electrical energy to melt these impurities, and will affect the life of the lining; the appropriate length of the furnace block will affect the electrical efficiency and melting quality of the electric furnace, generally200 ~ 300mm block is suitable;

3 , refractory materials  

The use of a suitable crucible can increase the melting rate, the quartz crucible is resistant to high temperatures, and is used with an intermediate frequency furnace. The metal material in the crucible generates heat by induction heating, which can reduce the heat transfer consumption.

4 , improper operation causes high energy consumption  

The molten metal is overheated and the liquid is discharged from the furnace. Not only is it unsafe, it is also wrong in terms of energy consumption and melting process. Generally, the electric furnace sensor is divided into two parts. When the metal liquid level in the furnace is lower than half of the upper inductor, the upper inductor no longer has an induced current passing due to the resistance change, and all of the lower inductors are concentrated in the lower inductor to make the lower metal liquid. Overheating, flushing the furnace wall, the life of the lining drops sharply.

Sixteen, how to save power in the intermediate frequency furnace?   ?

1. Under the premise of ensuring the reasonable operation of the workers, the rationality of the layout, and the overall layout of the electric furnace, we should minimize the space layout to shorten the overall connection line, which will reduce the loss of thermal power and save electricity.

2 , the material used should be as large as possible to ensure a smooth flow of current to prevent the copper row too small, causing the heat to take away part of the power.

3, to be diligent workers, and to continue feeding the auxiliary stirring steel, increase the speed of melting, saving power consumption

4 , the technical content of the intermediate frequency furnace, this point is not well determined by the manufacturers. Although the intermediate frequency furnace technology is relatively mature, each family still has its own certain advantages. Therefore, manufacturers are advised to choose large manufacturers to cooperate when purchasing electric furnaces. Make sure you save on power consumption.

XVII yoke IF furnace temperature is too high what is the reason?

The yoke redness is a common failure phenomenon in the operation of the intermediate frequency power supply. First check if there is any problem with the cooling water system, check whether the red yoke inlet and outlet water is normal, and whether the pipeline is aging or leaking. If it is normal, check the following aspects.

(1) The yoke of the intermediate frequency power supply is aging, and the interlayer insulating coating is severely corroded. For this, the silicon steel sheet can be opened for surface coating treatment.

(2) The yoke is adhered to the molten steel (iron filings), and the yoke can be polished to remove the adhered iron filings.

(3) Check the thickness of the bottom of the furnace. If the bottom of the furnace is too thick, it will cause the yoke to heat up and become red.

(4) The temperature of the circulating water inlet water is too high, and the water temperature inside the yoke circulation system is too high to generate gas. Since the gas cannot be discharged, the circulating water cannot circulate, causing the temperature to rise.

5 ) The circulating water pressure becomes smaller, or after the waterway is changed, the waterway becomes more or the water pipe becomes larger, and the water flow of the other circuits becomes larger, causing the yoke water flow to become smaller.

18. Is the IGBT intermediate frequency furnace really more energy efficient than the SCR intermediate frequency furnace?

Under the same conditions, the IGBT electric furnace saves 0.0976 % more energy than the SCR electric furnace , which is almost negligible.

IGBT is a new type of switching device, with fast switching speed, plus control signal conduction, eliminating control signal cut-off, convenient control, reduced conduction voltage and low power consumption. The maximum current of the IGBT is only 2 times the rated current, the impact resistance is poor. SCR is a traditional switching device with high control power and high impact resistance. Is the IGBT electric furnace really more energy efficient than the SCR electric furnace ? We can see whether the power is saved by the following calculation.

   1 t The power of 500KW electric furnace, into the phase voltage 380V, IGBT electric power factor is 0.98, the DC current is 928A, the power consumed by the IGBT 4 [1V (IGBT conduction voltage drop) X   928A/2]   X   4=1856W=1.856KW ; SCR electric furnace has a power factor of 0.93 and DC current is 977A. The power consumed by SCR is: [1.2V ( SCR conduction voltage drop) X977A/2]   X   4=2344W=2.344KW. It can be seen that the power consumed by the IGBT is 21 % lower than the power consumed by the SCR .

It is concluded that the IGBT electric furnace saves 21 % compared with the SCR electric furnace . It is wrong. We continue to calculate that the power consumed by the IGBT is 1.56KW/500KW=0.003712=0.3712% of the total power ; the power consumed by the SCR is the total power. The percentage is2.344KW/500KW=0.004688=0.4688%. It can be seen from the above calculation data that under the same conditions, the IGBT electric furnace saves 0.0976 % compared with the SCR electric furnace , which is almost negligible.

If other conditions are changed, the IGBT electric furnace adopts series inverter, and by increasing the intermediate frequency voltage to save electricity, that is another matter. SCR electric furnace can increase the intermediate frequency voltage by 2 times voltage. Since the withstand voltage and current of SCRare much higher than IGBT devices, SCR electric furnace can adopt high phase voltage and high intermediate frequency voltage. Therefore, SCR electric furnace is reasonable in design and expensive IGBT. Electric furnaces should be more energy efficient.

SCR electric furnace can use high phase voltage and high intermediate frequency voltage. Therefore, if the SCR electric furnace is designed reasonably, it is more energy-saving than the expensive IGB T electric furnace.
