Microwave energy is generated from electricity using microwave generators, which find diverse applications in various sectors for multiple purposes. The predominant use of microwaves is in thermal processes due to their excellent heating capabilities. We offer microwave generators in a range of power options, and their features can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.
Microwaves can be generated through two means – a magnetron or a solid-state microwave generator – both of which are entirely electric-based solutions.
Microwave radiation is harnessed for heating and drying applications owing to the dielectric loss characteristics of materials. The rapid reversal of electromagnetic field polarity induces vibrations and rotation of polarized molecules in the material, thereby generating heat. This phenomenon underpins the heat generation mechanism.
Microwaves belong to the category of electromagnetic radiation, which might raise concerns about their safety. However, since they are non-ionizing radiation, their impact does not persist over time.
Microwave generators offer an excellent solution to enhance thermal processes across various sectors, and serve as a reliable energy source for industrial and scientific applications.
Microwave generators are well-suited to augment heating and drying processes, and find extensive usage in the food industry for rapid defrosting or tempering of food products. They are also useful for heating or drying different materials such as ceramics, wood, powder, and textiles, and facilitate power-to-x and hydrogen synthesis, as well as chemical processes like vulcanization and polymerization.
Microwave energy also offers advantages for scientific purposes, particularly in plasma generation. In fact, NexGen microwave generators are ideal for producing PECVD synthetic diamonds.
