With an innovative induction heating vacuum furnace, cycle times can be dramatically reduced in comparison to traditional resistance heating methods.
The chart above plots time/temperature curves for a typical nickel brazing process. The induction heating vacuum furnace completes the process in less than one hour while the same process requires more than three hours with resistance heating. With the GH IA VF-30 Vacuum Furnace, 1900°F can be reached in less than fifteen minutes and temperatures as high as 3200° can be achieved. Cool down to 1200°F from maximum temperature can be completed in 4.5 minutes.
