Many different types of materials may be heated by exposure to a high-frequency electric field. Nonmetallic or non-conducting materials that are difficult to heat uniformly by conventional heating methods are particularly suitable for high-frequency heating, providing they possess the necessary physical, chemical and electrical properties.

Being a leading manufacturer of high-frequency heating equipment, Thermex Thermatron supplies systems and units to a wide range of industries.

Conveyorized Modular Industrial Microwave Power Systems

Thermex Thermatron’s Conveyorized Modular Industrial Microwave Systems are built in a large variety of shapes and sizes according to the requirements of the continuous heating process. Each module can apply up to 100kW of power to the product being heated and operates at 915 MHz. Based on the power requirements, two or more modules can be installed on the same conveyor. To assure uniform heat distribution in a large variety of load configurations, the multimode cavity is provided with a Waveguide Splitter with dual microwave feed points and Mode Stirrers.

The product being heated is carried through the oven by a unique conveyor belt. The belt material and configuration are selected based on the nature of the product being heated. Each end of the conveyor is provided with a special vestibule to suppress any microwave energy leakage. Air intake and exhaust ports are provided for circulating air to be used in cases where vapors or fumes are developed during the heating process.

Common Uses:

Drying or curing

Applications:

Ceramics ▪ Catalysts ▪ Pyrolysis ▪ Vulcanizing ▪ Composites ▪ Bulk fibrous components ▪ Sand cores ▪ General drying & heating of electrically non- conductive materials ▪ Research & development

Batch Ovens

Thermex Thermatron Industrial Microwave Batch Ovens are built in a large variety of shapes and sizes according to the specific application. These ovens are fabricated out of aluminum for drying and heating industrial products or stainless steel for food applications. With a uniform load distribution within the oven, a multimode cavity develops a uniform heat distribution throughout the entire Microwave Batch Oven.

Air intake and exhaust ports are provided for circulating air to be used where vapors or fumes are developed during the heating process.

To assure uniform heat distribution in a large variety of load configurations, each oven is provided with a Waveguide Splitter with dual Microwave feed points and Mode Stirrer.

Common Uses:

Laboratory research ▪ Drying ▪ Curing ▪ Heating ▪ Cooking ▪ Thawing

Applications:

Ceramics ▪ Catalysts ▪ Pyrolysis ▪ Vulcanizing ▪ Composites ▪ Bulk fibrous components ▪ Sand cores ▪ General drying & heating of electrically non-conductive materials ▪ Research & development

Batch Oven Available Options

  • Auxiliary Hot Air System using electric heat to preheat the circulating air throughout the cavity.
  • Oscillating turntable that rotates the product while traveling vertically through the microwave field for even heat distribution throughout the product.
  • Temperature Port allows the user to install an infrared or fiber optic temperature probe or similar devices to monitor the heating process. Output from these devices can be used to control the Microwave Power input into the oven.

Laboratory/Pilot Microwave Systems

The Thermex Laboratory/Pilot Microwave System is designed to bridge the gap between small bench top ovens and production systems. The system is a complete self-contained microwave source used for industrial, laboratory and pilot heating processes. Thermex Engineers have designed the MW System to allow the researcher to test larger samples under controlled conditions and develop a database of information. The ability to establish consistent and reproducible test data provides the confidence that is important for establishing the groundwork for a successful manufacturing process. The unique features of this system coupled with the PLC controls yield the ultimate in material testing, data acquisition, trending and process development.

Common Uses:

Laboratory research & development

Applications:

Ceramics ▪ Catalysts ▪ Pyrolysis ▪ Vulcanizing ▪ Composites ▪ Bulk fibrous components ▪ Sand cores ▪ General drying & heating of electrically non-conductive materials ▪ Research & development
