ABSTRACT—The innovative inline gas-induction furnace is an efficient and powerful heating solution, which combines the advantages of a modern gas heater in combination with a powerful induction furnace mounted together in one axis. Results are: low space requirements related, extreme increase of heating rate at existing space areas, further use of existing downstream equipment, perfect process control, and other valuable effects. The article will describe the working principle, motivation for developing the inline concept, technical features, and operation data, and show clearly the outstanding economical potential for using this technology in existing lines, in retrofitting projects, or in lines with limited space.
