Heating and drying
The properties of microwaves and radio-frequency make them very well suited to heating and drying materials rapidly and homogeneously.

Unrivaled performance on insulating materials
For insulating materials, such as honeycomb ceramics or technical textile reels, traditional convection heat will only reach the core of the product slowly. The heating and drying process will occur at different rates inside the product and on the surface. The temperature will not be homogeneous and different dilation speeds may alter quality.
Using microwave or radio frequency will deliver a homogeneous temperature rise, at the core and on the surface, enhancing the final product properties.
The volumetric heating properties of microwave and radio frequencies make them perfect for heating thermal insulating products such as honeycomb ceramics or technical textile reels, or large volume products such as wool bales or rubber pallets. Traditional convection heating takes a long time to reach the core of the product, slowing down the process and increasing stock.
Our equipment associates microwave or radio frequency power with hot air, steam or vacuum, for excellent performance in various applications such as the drying of pharmaceutical products, plants or dairy products, powders, ceramics, polymers, foams, wood …
The selective drying to the core of the product achieves efficient drying with no degradation of delicate materials such as plant matter, medicines and medical material. Our machines are designed so that drying temperatures can be perfectly controlled, at atmospheric pressure or under vacuum.Ask for a test
