Industrial Microwave Systems:
Ferrite Microwave Technologies offers commercial-scale microwave systems and soltuions operating in the 915MHz frequency range. These include continuous (belt-based) units, batch indexing systems, booster ovens, cooking systems, and IMS units for heating or drying of liquids, chemicals, and fluids. 915MHz systems are available in single mode or multi-mode.
Industrial Microwave Systems:
Industrial Microwave Systems (IMS) 2450MHz systems are lab-scale units that apply microwave energy to various processes and applications. These style units are capable of processing webs of fabric, sheets of paper, strands of foam, conveyed beds of material, pumpable chemicals, food products, biomaterials, and more. Units available in planar or cylindrical topologies.
