Inductotherm Heating and Welding Ltd
Inductotherm Heating & Welding Ltd is part of the Inductotherm Group which brings together over forty companies strategically located around the world, all serving the metals and materials industry - through the design, manufacturing and global supply of a wide range of induction heating equipment. Inductotherm Heating & Welding Ltd specialise in a number of process applications including:
- Tube and Pipe Production
- Pipe Heating and Coating Systems
- Wire Processing Equipment
- Induction Forge Heating
- Non-Ferrous Billet Heating
- Induction Heat Treating
- Induction Heating Power Supplies
Radyne Merlin Heat & Coat Systems deliver the most efficient means of heating and coating field joints by carrying out both operations simultaneously.
This is a major benefit to offshore pipe laying organisations as the Merlin Heat & Coat System provides a reduced field joint processing cycle time, allowing a faster throughput of pipe preparation prior to laying.
- Integrated induction coils in an easy automated open/close system
- Fully automated precision control and application of a two-coat FBE and co-polymer coating
- Multiple coating heads providing a faster, more even coating
- Vertical and Horizontal operational capability
- Standard modular frames and assemblies allow for simple infield reconfiguration for multiple applications
Banyard specialises in non-ferrous induction heating technology providing mains and low frequency heating solutions for Aluminium, Brass, Copper and exotic alloys for both sawn and sheared billets.
- Zero Friction Billet Heater
- Booster Induction Taper Heater
- Extruheat Induction Billet Heater
Thermatool CFI series solid-state HF induction welders provide tube and pipe producers with a seam welding system which is soley designed to serve the tube and pipe production industry.
Built to a modular specification, Thermatool induction welders utilise the highest quality materials and are available with features such as:
- Variable Frequency
- Automatic Impedance Matching (AutoMatch)
- HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) Control Technology
Performance, reliability and quality of end-product are key issues within the tube and pipe production environment, with the added task of producing a wide range of tube and pipe diameters. Naturally, Thermatool engineers design and build each application-specific induction welder with these issues in mind.
With ever-increasing energy costs worldwide, many tube and pipe producers have elected to install Thermatool CFD series dual mode induction / contact series welders. For welding in contact mode alone, Thermatool CFC series contact welders are particularly suited for I-Beam or Spiral Fin-Tube production.
- Offers two welding processes in one single, solid-state unit
- Satisfies demanding API pipe specifications when in induction mode
- Achieves significant weld power cost savings when in contact mode
- Offers quick-change capability between induction /contact modes
Many metals require heating and/or heat treatment to achieve their optimum physical properties. Depending on requirements, IHWT engineers can specify either Banyard or Radyne induction heating solutions.
