Microwave furnace technology can now be beneficially utilized for advanced material processing on a commercial scale.
Overcome the challenges of conventional heating. Let Harper be your guide to discover if your advanced material is suitable for microwave systems. Our capabilities cover a range of applications such as drying, sintering, activation, controlled pyrolysis, oxidation, and carbonization for products such as ceramic powders, shaped ceramics, carbon materials, and battery materials.
Through our decades of furnace design experience, our team understands the many challenges associated with conventional heating. In some applications, it can be difficult to get convective heat deep in a powder bed, control contamination for abrasive powders, or remove moisture through the entirety of the product. Microwave furnace heating can be a solution in these and many other scenarios.
There can be many misconceptions when microwave heating is considered during the design process. Microwaves can only heat from the inside out? Microwave furnaces are only for batch processing? Harper can help determine if your material is the right fit for a continuous furnace to optimize your process, whether a Rotary Tube , Belt Conveyor or other type of system.
