Microwaves can be effectively used in the processing of industrial materials under a wide range of conditions. However, microwave processing is complex and multidisciplinary in nature, and a high degree of technical knowledge is needed to determine how, when, and where the technology can be most profitably utilized. This book assesses the potential of microwave technology for industrial applications, reviews the latest equipment and processing methods, and identifies both the gaps in understanding of microwave processing technology and the promising development opportunities that take advantage of this new technology's unique performance characteristics.Committee on Microwave Processing of Materials: An Emerging Industrial Technology, Commission on Engineering and Technical ... and the real cost per part based on the coupling efficiency and the size and number of parts, and the cost of maintenance, repair, and replacement. ...
