  • Complete systems with full line mechanics
  • Mechanical systems are designed for ease of operation and maintenance
  • Central electrical control system ensures power input is continually varied to suit the corresponding line speed
  • Electrical control system features ‘HMI’ interface for ease of operation and allows programming of a multitude of tube sizes
  • Solid state inverters operating in both medium and high frequencies
  • Power supplies are water cooled by means of a closed loop recirculating system
  • Inductor coil line designed to induction anneal copper tube under a reducing atmosphere to produce a bright annealed finish both inside and outside
  • Dwell and quench zones are designed to ensure the copper tube is first held at the correct temperature to obtain full grain uniformity, before being rapidly cooled at full line speed for maximum productivity
  • High speed induction heating for annealing at line speeds of up to 600 meters per minute with minimal operator interface
