The power supply units for the induction melting furnaces are equipped with latest State-of-the-art Digital Inverter technology through Fibre Optic Communication (DiFOC) systems to handle loads up to 36,000 kW.
PROBLEMS FACED BY ELECTROTHERM INDIA
Electrotherm required a trusted partner for delivery of reliable enclosure solutions for the Power Supply Units.
A standard baying from 3 to 8 enclosures was vital for smooth operations. The number of enclosures required increased with the capacity of furnaces.
SOLUTION IMPLEMENTED BY RITTAL
Rittal’s fully symmetrical and world-wide patented TS 8 Enclosures were supplied to address the quality, delivery and baying issues of existing enclosures of Electrotherm.
The TS 8, designed specifically for demanding industrial applications like the metal melting industry, features a 16-fold tubular frame and multi-level mounting capability for unsurpassed strength and flexibility. Due to its symmetrical profile in terms of width and depth, the TS 8 baying system saves considerable space and facilitates easy internal installation. It also allows a baying arrangement on all sides. In addition, the integrated, automatic potential equalization of all enclosure panels and the triple machining of the surface ensures maximum safety.
OPTIMUM SURFACE PROTECTION
The three-phase surface finish of the TS 8 baying system promises optimum corrosion protection and resistance to mineral oils, lubricants, machining emulsions and solvents such as those used in cleaning.
MAXIMUM QUALITY AND SAFETY IS A THREE-STEP PROCESS
1st phase: Nanoceramic primer
2nd phase: Electrophoretic dipcoat priming
3rd phase: Textured powdered coating
