Comparison of simulation and experiment for copper billet heating

Application: Heat Treatment

Software: ELTA 6.0/5.5

Type: Practical experience

Industrial experiment:
Coil: ID = 31 cm, length 125 cm, turn number 91, tube width 1.2 cm, thermal insulation 2 cm, ceramic fiber.
Billet: Dia.= 24.2 cm, material – copper M2, initial temperature 25 °C, final – 850 °C.
Operating conditions: frequency 50 Hz, coil voltage 390 V, heating time 1100 sec (more).








ELTA 5.5 (6.0) was used to find a possibility to improve the heater.
