Features

Channel Coating Pots provide good inductor refractory life making them ideal for galvanized, galvannealed and Galfan®coatings. They are also used for aluminum zinc and other aluminum alloy coatings. Channel inductors contain induction coil assemblies and a magnetic core made of special transformer sheet laminations. These pots are designed to hold very large volumes of metal. Inductotherm Channel Coating Pots feature:

  • A rectangular design to allow for large volumes for direct ingot feeding
  • Heavy gauge steel plates for excellent refractory support
  • Temperature monitoring to enhance reliability
  • On-site preparation with custom dry rammed refractory around a consumable channel mold (can be hung within 24 hours of installation)
  • Optional bogies and lifts for multiple pot installations
  • Water-cooled or air-cooled inductors

Galfan® is a trademark of Galfan Technology Centre, Inc.
