The range of services proposed for the Induction Heating and Cooling equipment are:
Consultant for preventive replacement
Preventive maintenance visit, especially for equipment working 24H a day
Definition of extra stocks according to the criticality of details and operating modes
Repair of all Fives Celes generators including those for which manufacturing has stopped for years.
Repair of Celes vacuum-tube generators
In spite of their reduced efficiency (60 to 70%) and the limited operating life of the triodes used in these converters, these power sources are still commonly used thanks to their operating flexibility, easy maintenance and ability to operate at very high frequencies in the MHz range.
Replacement of these inverters by Celes IS or Celes MP up-dated technologies could be justified when the purchase of a triode is necessary.
Repair of Celes paralell-thyristor MF inverters
These converters which are a controlled current source feeding a parallel oscillating circuit had a good efficiency. They could allow a wide range of power and frequency with serial and/or parallel couplings of fast thyristors. They now suffer from the stop of production of these semi-conductors. Fives Celes recommended at the beginning of 2007 to all its customers base to procure some spares and consider a replacement these inverters by Celes IS digital controlled inverters.
Fives Celes customer support can make expertise on equipment manufactured by other companies.
