Why use microwave technology?
The selective heating properties of microwaves are particularly well adapted for the thermal treatment of composites, whereas the volumetric heating properties allow homogeneous thermal treatment, leading to an improvement in the final product quality.
The highly efficient heating by microwave means that very high heating kinetics of several hundred degrees per minute can be reached. This leads to the reduction of treatment times from hours to minutes, a significant reduction in energy consumption, and an increase in productivity.
Our microwave furnaces at 915 MHz and 2450 MHz can perform high temperature treatments up to 1600 °C. Our magnetron or solid-state generators are made for excellent precision of the microwave power generated and perfect reproducibility of the process.
As an option, you can carry out heat treatments under a controlled atmosphere, or apply uniaxial pressure during heating.
Our systems are equipped with manual and automatic impedance adaptation modules, in order to adapt to the physico-chemical modifications of the product during thermal heating.
Full control of the process
Our high performance tools are designed to help you understand your processes and identify critical parameters. They allow continuous control and monitoring of the forward power, the reflected power, the temperature and pressure, thanks to our unique user interface.
Created by chemical scientists, expert in microwaves, they will let you monitor and fully document your process.Ask for a test
