Carpenter VIM VAR Core Iron is a low carbon magnetic iron produced using vacuum induction melting plus vacuum arc re-melting practices. Other elements commonly found in low carbon irons are held as low as possible to ensure good DC magnetic properties. This double melting technique controls the distribution of nonmetallic inclusions to a minimum length and frequency so that thin wall sections will not contain leaks due to internal discontinuities.
Carpenter VIM VAR Core Iron (also known as Carpenter Vacumet Consumet Core Iron) is often used in the manufacture of soft magnetic components where vacuum integrity is needed such as in power tubes and microwave devices. In addition, relays, solenoids, and magnetic pole pieces for scientific instruments may be made utilizing the qualities of VIM VAR Core Iron.
