(1) 450 kw Power Control Unit & Operator Panel


Technical Advantages of the Ajax TOCCO Equipment:


Jet-Flow® Inductors are designed, developed and put into practical use exclusively by Ajax TOCCO.


Full Time Power Ratings. Jet-Flow® inductors operate at full rated power 24 hours per day throughout the life of the inductor.


Maximum Controlled Metal Circulation. Uniform metal circulation creates uniform chemistry and temperature throughout the molten bath, and affords the most accurate overall temperature control.


Lowest Temperature Differential between inductor and main hearth molten metal. Eliminates thermal cycling, eliminates hot spots, increases refractory life, lowers operating and maintenance costs.
