Miniature Microwave Furnace Aids Materials Research

The ThermWAVE laboratory-scale microwave-sintering furnace is ideal for small-scale firing of ceramic materials, melting of small amounts of precious and non-precious metals and glass, curing, forming, and joining materials. Developed by Research Microwave Systems LLC (Alfred, NY), the low-cost system can achieve temperatures exceeding +1500{DEG}C in less than 30 minutes. The ThermWAVE system features an integrated computer controller with iSeries ActiveX control for Microsoft Excel files. The water-cooled system is powered by a standard 120-VAC electrical outlet. A high-performance version of the furnace is also available with thermocouple assembly that allows for the introduction of inert gases during operation.
