INDUCTION HEATER SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

An induction heater is a high power device that should be treated with hazards similar but not limited to that of induction cooktops and welders. In addition to that, you must observe the following safety guidelines should.

  • Don’t wear metal jewelry, especially rings near the work coil. Heating can occur a few inches from the coil depending on its geometry.
  • If you have a pacemaker or other medical implants never use or be near this machine while it is in operation.
  • Keep electronics at least 12 inches from the work coil while in operation to avoid damage to these devices.
  • Never touch the work coil. Although it is isolated from dangerous mains current, there is still high power present. Holding metal objects that touch or short out the work coil will not harm the unit.
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times work working near the machine, including but not limited to safety glasses and gloves.

ReactorForge holds no responsibility or liability for injury to person or damage to property should you choose to build and/or operate any kit, product, or machine made available. This includes building any kit, product, or machine using plans from ReactorForge using your own parts or parts obtained from ReactorForge. If you feel you are not qualified to build or operate an induction heater find someone qualified and willing to assist you or do not attempt it.
