February 14, 2005
Ceralink Inc. now offers CerMAT(TM), a patented microwave assist technology that brings materials manufacturers enormous potential for increased productivity at a reduced energy cost. The technology uses microwave energy to assist with either conventional electric or gas firing. Microwave assisted heating is effective for large scale manufacturers of ceramics, as well as glass and metal melting. Advantages of this technology include even heating, energy efficiency and the ability to retrofit existing standard furnaces with magnetrons. Ceralink has an exclusive license in North America to use and sublicense the technology. Holly S. Shulman, Ph.D., president of Ceralink, will be offering technology transfer packages to select furnace manufacturers. Packages will include design, construction and commissioning services from Ceralink, as well as the transfer of technology and know how.
