Magnetic flux concentrators (also called flux intensifiers, diverters, or controllers) are made from high-permeability, low-power-loss materials. They are routinely used in induction heat treating applications in a manner similar to that of magnetic cores in power transformers. This article presents basic information about magnetic flux concentrator materials, its limitations and advantages, and provides design and selection guidelines for their use in induction heat treating.
