Green Technology: Hi-Temperature Microwave
Sintering Reduces Energy Use Up to 80% and
Process Time Up to 90%
WEBWIRE Wednesday, February 06, 2008
Asian industry is leading the development and switch to
high-temperature microwave sintering, replacing inefficient gas
and electric furnaces with this newer "green" technology.
"Switching to microwave furnaces cuts energy use up to 80%
and reduces processing time by 90% while creating
higher-quality end products with finer grain and increased
density, strength and corrosion resistance," says Joseph Hines,
chairman of Phoenix-based Spheric Technologies, Inc. Sintering involves pressing metal or
