The Benefits of Induction Heating in the Storage Tank Fabrication

Storage tank construction is a competitive business. If you want to stay ahead of the competition, you need to maximize the efficiency of your welding operations. This is where induction heating comes in. Induction heating causes a part to heat from within, thanks largely to the effects of eddy currents in the presence of a high-frequency magnetic field. The weldment essentially becomes its own heating element.

The benefits of this are numerous. Safety is a big one. With induction heating, workers are free from the risks of open flames, dangerous fumes, and volatile fuel gases. In terms of efficiency, induction heaters are quick to set up and easy to use. They also offer a much faster time-to-temperature than traditional heating methods. This reduces cycle time and allows your welders to get welding sooner.

When it comes to accuracy and consistency, induction heaters will always outperform torches. Some heaters, like the ArcReach Induction Heater, can even digitally record all the heating parameters and export the values for quality control documentation.

The bottom line is that this technology can positively affect your bottom line. Induction heaters eliminate the need for traditional fuel consumables, reduce cycle time, and decrease the likelihood of rework due to inadequate temperature control. They are a safe, cost-effective solution for preheats, postweld heat treatment, and more.

It can be intimidating to try a new technology, but Red-D-Arc has you covered. Give us a call at 1-866-733-3272 and we’ll connect you with an induction heating specialist who can help you find the best heating solution for your tank fabrication needs.
