PostSubject: Help with Induction heating for steam Thu Feb 12, 2009 8:20 am

Hi,

I'm working on a project that would require the ability to heat water into steam via electric induction, preferably DC or via AC converter if necessary.

I'm thinking a monotube design with an induction coil surrounding it that could produce steam from 2 quarts of water in say 30 seconds or less.

Anyone here have experience with that kind of design?

Thanks,

Definitely use a single tube. I would use one with vanes on the inside to maximize surface area between the water and the metal.

Get a copy of Davies & Simpson's Induction Heating Handbook through interlibrary-loan.
