Versatile Applications and Scalability

Solid State Microwave heating systems cater to a diverse range of consumer, scientific, and industrial applications. Our systems are highly scalable, ranging from precision tabletop units to large-scale industrial systems. By utilizing electric power, microwave heating systems present a superior alternative to hydrocarbon-powered heating systems, addressing decarbonization requirements effectively. Our systems operate within the government allocated “Industrial, Scientific, and Medical” (ISM) radio frequency bands:

  • L-Band (902 to 928 MHz): Offers high power capability at a cost-effective rate, making it suitable for high-volume processes with deeper material penetration.  Our systems support practical power levels up to 500 kW for solid-state systems. 
  • S-Band (2400 to 2500 MHz): Frequently used in consumer microwave ovens and plasma applications.  The equipment is compact and efficient.  Our systems support practical power levels up to 30 kW for solid-state systems.
