Research has demonstrated that microwave casting can produce metals with reduced impurities. Induction melting, by comparison, picks up chemical impurities from the crucible as a result of the harsh eddy current stirring that occurs in the process. Microwave melting eliminates the eddy currents.
Microwave melting equipment is generally smaller than competing technologies due to the compact nature of power supplies and reduced utility requirements.
The efficiency of microwave melting is a result of the intimate contact between the heating element (i.e., crucible) and the target material.
Microwave melting furnaces are inherently flexible and have the ability to process multiple target materials promptly compared to the competing technologies.
With the various applications in which the microwave is used the safety aspect is foremost its greatest attribution. Unlike competing technologies that uses systems that generate high external temperatures, the Microwave’s external and internal temperature remains at a safe working temperature excluding the stack make up. This in turn creates safer daily operations.
