How do they work?

The industrial microwave transmitter is the heart of equipment that are used to generate and transmit microwave energy for a wide range of industrial and scientific applications. Microwaves are a section of an electromagnetic spectrum that spans from radio waves to gamma rays. The spectrum is measured in Hertz, wavelengths, and energy. 

What are they used for?

The applications of these microwaves include industrial heating, drying, sterilization, tempering and cooking as well as scientific research, medical applications and more.

One of the main advantages of industrial microwave transmitters is their ability to provide exact specifications for cooking, defrosting, heating, and drying various foods and materials quickly and evenly. Unlike traditional methods that rely on heat conduction or convection, microwave energies can penetrate deep into the material, heating and drying from the inside out for a more efficient and evenly dispersed result.

 This is particularly useful in applications such as food processing, where it is important to produce a high volume of product that is consistent and uniformly tempered or cooked.

The industrial microwave transmitters application of its energy production is the ability to dry materials faster than conventional oven ribbon dryers or other methods. In many industrial processes, the removal of moisture is an essential first step in their process. Commonly used drying methods, such as air drying, is slow and rarely effective in removing all the moisture from the material causing delays in production and complications in the process if not dried to exact requirements. Using microwave energy for drying had been proven to more completely remove moisture quickly and with greater consistency, resulting in a higher quality product.


In addition to tempering, cooking, and drying, industrial microwave transmitters are also used for various forms of sterilization. Microwave energy penetrates into the wastewater, sludge, and hazardous waste products, heating the target and destroying bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens and microorganisms. This makes microwave sterilization a safe and effective method for sanitizing a wide range of hazardous waste materials, medical equipment, tools, and devices.


Microwave energy produced by these transmitters can be found in the field of scientific research and medicinal production. In research, they are used to study the effects of microwave energy on various substances, and in medical applications, they are used to destroy cancer cells, and sterilize surgical equipment.

What is that right transmitter for my industry?

When it comes to choosing an industrial microwave transmitter, there are several factors to consider. First and foremost is understanding the application in which the microwaves will be utilized. The material involved, desired temperature, rate of throughput and end result will determine the type of microwave transmitter, it’s frequency and power output. Different frequencies are better suited to different applications, and it is important to choose a frequency that will be effective for the specific application.
Another important consideration is the power output of the transmitter. The power output will determine the amount of energy that is available for the application, and it is important to choose a transmitter with a power output that is appropriate for the specific application.


75kW and 100kW industrial microwave transmitters are powerful pieces of equipment that are designed for industrial and scientific applications that require a high level of energy output. These transmitters are capable of generating microwave energy at frequencies of 2.45 GHz and 915 MHz respectively. They are typically used for large-scale industrial heating, drying, and sterilization applications.


A 75kW industrial microwave transmitters are built with steel cabinets and generally Allen-Bradly control hardware giving it great flexibility in design and construction. Operating at frequencies of 896 MHz, 915 MHz or 922 MHz, this will generate 75 or 100kW of microwave energy. Microwave transmitters are built and designed specifically for their destination country’s voltage requirements.


These industrial microwave transmitters are capable of generating greater energy output suitable for even larger-scale industrial processes and can be utilized as a single unit or in combination with additional transmitters providing more energy and wider applications. This versatility allows for industrial processes that require a high level of energy output, such as metal heating, and chemical reactions.


Both 75kW and 100kW industrial microwave transmitters are designed to be robust and durable, able to withstand the high demands of commercial usage for food processing, diamond manufacturing, large scale sanitation and industrial vulcanization. All microwave transmitters feature 302 steel construction and are designed for easy operations and maintenance. They can also be customized to meet specific requirements and can be integrated into existing industrial systems.


In conclusion, 75kW and 100kW industrial microwave transmitters that are designed for large-scale industrial and scientific applications. They are capable of generating a high level of energy output with objective controls for specific applications making them suitable for heating, drying and sterilization applications. They are designed for heavy duty usage and long lasting. When choosing between a 75kW or 100kW transmitter, it is important to understand how the microwave energy is applicable to your specific requirements and work with an expert in the microwave energy field to determine the best transmitter configuration and design to fulfill your needs.
