Red-D-Arc Welderentals offers ample welding and heating equipment for sale or rent, including the Miller ArcReach air-cooled induction heater. This heating system is designed for preheating and bake-out applications at temperatures up to 315 degrees Celsius, with no cooler or coolant required. Users achieve critical temperatures quickly and hold them steadily over long periods with induction heating. The ArcReach is recommended for applications in refineries, oil and gas, petrochemicals, power plants, shipyards, and structural work.
The power of induction heating
Older heating methods, such as using rosebuds, are slow, inexact, and expensive, making them inefficient for tank fabricators. Using the power of induction heating, workers can reduce their heating time by as much as 80 per cent. With the Miller ArcReach, users can manually program temperature control settings or upload them from a USB key. The heating system records all data automatically and saves them for quality-assurance and documentation purposes.
The ArcReach induction heater can be powered directly by specific on-site welding power sources to all economical, in-sourced weld preheating. Benefits include lower preheating expenses and no welding/heating team changeover, which eliminates needless delays. Users can run their own schedules without relying on third-party contractors and use existing onsite welding equipment up to 200 feet away as power sources. This system also eliminates the safety concerns that come with traditional open-flame heating.
Miller has made the air-cooled cables and quick wraps from durable high-temperature materials and designed them to withstand the challenging conditions of industrial and construction environments. Other technical specifications of this induction heater from Red-D-Arc:
Another key benefit is a better working environment during welding. Workers are not exposed to the open flames, explosive gases, or hot elements associated with fuel-gas and resistance heating. Time-to-temperature is quicker than in conventional processes.
