The L.C. Miller M-10 mobile induction heating station was designed to perform a multitude of induction heating operations for production and research applications.  Typical uses include silver brazing of carbide cutting tools, transmission coaxial cables, metal solenoid coil bobbins, etc. 

There are many applications where the induction method is replacing time-consuming hand-held torches and furnaces for soldering or brazing operations.  Thanks to patented technology, improved production and quality can now be realized with the M-10 mobile induction system.

It is difficult to name an industry in which the induction heating process is not employed.  A mini-list of popular industrial uses is listed below.

The system above is equipped with four, 8 inch diameter, 4 ply pneumatic wheels which allows easy movement from one location to another.  A convenient foot operated lock is provided to mechanically stabilize the system during operation.

The system above consists of the following components:

  • DYNAFLUX X* power supply
  • Induction heating transformer
  • Quick-change coil device
  • Hermetically sealed timer
  • Non-contact infra-red detector with laser sight
  • Digital temperature readout
  • Pendant controller which displays voltage, current, power and frequency
  • Self-contained water cooler
  • A convenient steel drawer, 12" wide x 20" deep x 5" high for storing instruments and accessories

MOBILE CART: The heavy duty welded steel cart is 48: long and 37.25" high.  It weighs 129 lbs. and shelves have 19" clearance.  It has 8" x 3" pneumatic wheels with floor lock.  Tire pressure should be 45 pounds.

WATER COOLER: The water cooler is mounted on the bottom shelf.  It has a 3 gallon molded polyethylene water tank and an efficient forced air-cooled heat exchanger.  The filler spout and filter are mounted on the front panel for easy access.  The coolant is deionized water.  The cooling capacity is 14,000 BTU/hr.  The unit has a 1/4 hp motor which is thermally protected.  The water pressure is preset at 55 PSI.

POWER REQUIREMENTS:  The power supply operates on either 240 or 480 vac., 60 Hz, 3 phase.  The water pump, infrared detector and controls employ 120 vac.  This power is provided through an outlet strip mounted on the bottom shelf.  It is fused and has an on-off switch and indicator light.
