Fluxtrol and CIT made a lot for bringing the induction heating technology to new level of practical use and understanding of this complicated process. It is due to their research in theoretical aspects and use of different magnetic flux concentrator products.
Hans Kristoffersen Senior Researcher, Sweden
Fluxtrol’s concentrators and design assistance helped Retech improve the performance of its cold crucible induction melting furnaces. The gains in efficiency have led to improved melting ability and product quality. This is very important for the advanced complex alloys being brought to market.
Robert Haun Director of New Product Development, Ukiah, USA
Fluxtrol was very good to deal with, both in providing initial design and manufacturing advice for getting the most out of their unique material, as well as help in the wider context of implementation, including cooling and power supply design. I’d certainly use them again in the future.
Martin McBrien Researcher, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge
