Title: Apparatus to control the total energy flux into the top ingot surface during vacuum arc remelting processes

Abstract

A Vacuum Arc Remelting controller apparatus wherein process control is accomplished primarily through control of pool power. Pool power being defined as the total energy flux into a top ingot surface of the VAR ingot. The controller apparatus of the present invention comprises a controller computer that transmits commands to the host furnace through an ethernet connection.
