During the melting process, titanium reacts extremely strongly with the gases in the air.
Often used methods of titanium melting in argon shield do not give satisfactory results due to the residual oxygen content which remains despite repeated “rinsing” of the furnace chamber. Under such conditions, the melting of titanium must be carried out quickly so that the residual oxygen content does not change the composition of the molten metal.
The optimal solution, however, high-technology, is to use a vacuum plant providing high vacuum. Such solutions are used, for example, in the implant manufacturing industry.
Induction vacuum melting, as opposed to arc vacuum furnaces, provides stability and repeatability of the process.
The Induction High Vacuum Furnace IPWP-10, developed at EnergoEl, can be equipped with test stands and industrial production lines.
