Ceralink Inc.: Microwave-Assist Furnaces
The furnaces can be used for binder burnout, calcining and sintering applications. Ceralink also offers production-scale gas or electric MAT furnaces in batch, elevator and tunnel kilns.
MAT is a patented technology that combines gas or electric furnaces with microwave energy to heat ceramic products. MAT decreases furnace cycle times by a factor of two, cutting energy consumption by at least 50%. The radiant and microwave heating are applied simultaneously, leading to uniform heat distribution, faster firing, more complete binder removal, lower-temperature calcining, etc. This technology also offers improved materials properties, including the potential for the densification of nanoceramics.
Ceralink has exclusive license and is the only authorized source for MAT in North America. Ceralink also offers sublicense packages that include feasibility testing and materials development for the manufacture of materials using MAT technology in its Microwave Testing Center.
