INDUCTION HEATING provides contactless, fast, and efficient heating of conductive materials

Induction heating technology is nowadays the heating technology of choice in many industrial, domestic, and medical applications due to its advantages regarding efficiency, fast heating, safety, cleanness, and accurate control


ADVANTAGES

MAGMENT concrete cooking surfaces improve the user’s experience while providing an efficient and cost-effective solution

 
 

Inductor System Description and Design

The flux concentrators improve the electromagnetic coupling between the inductor and the pot

Bars of ferrite, a high-permeability low-dissipative material are generally used as concentrators

The shielding is a sheet of a low-dissipative metallic material, usually aluminum

The same materials are used in total active surface cooktops, but these are adapted to the characteristics of the application


Toward More Flexible Cooking Surfaces

Inductive heating appliances directly
heat the pot, thereby significantly
reducing heating time

Lowest heating time is achieved with inductive heating technologies

High-efficiency power converters make inductive heating the most efficient heating technology

It achieves the highest efficiency, whereas gas obtains the lowest values because of the heat loss to the ambience

Inductive heating does not heat the surface to heat the pot

Only the residual heat is transferred from the pot to the cooking surface, leading to significantly lower temperatures

This is an important safety feature, since it avoids the risk of burning the user or starting fires


FURTHER APPLICATIONS

Industrial applications require higher output powers and higher reliability

The inductor design needs to adapt to the different shapes of induction targets, and provide the required heat profile

 

Domestic applications require low cost and highly efficient implementations due to the limited cooling capabilities

The inductor system must be designed also to obtain high efficiency and be able to heat non-ferromagnetic materials

 

Medical applications are usually low power, but they require very accurate control of the heating process, including temperature and localization
