Expert RF Heating Engineering Consulting Services

RF Heating Engineering applications include induction eddy current heating of metals and heating of materials that exhibit ionic conduction, which permits these materials to be heated by the friction created when ions are moving through the material with the material immersed in a uniform electromagnetic field. Ionic conduction heating is commonly used to cure the emulsion on x-ray film, to assist with drying large volumes of grains, defrosting meats quickly for commercial kitchens, and processing an assortment of foods. RF Heating Engineering applications consist of equipment built for the specific volume of material to be heated, so contact SiberSci, LLC today to get started with your custom design project.

Hence, SiberSci, LLC is an experienced RF Heating Engineering Consultant resource providing RF Heating, RF Drying, RF Consulting, and RF Heating Consulting resources for both continuous flow and batch processing of ionic materials.  These materials include solids, films, powders, and liquids. SiberSci, LLC provides Induction Heating Consulting for induction heating applications including metals and plasmas.

Furthermore, SiberSci, LLC provides services for the theoretical analysis, design, development, fabrication, testing, validation, and optimization of RF Heating systems for laboratory and industrial applications. Our experience allows us to review the pertinent material properties, client-defined temperature specifications for a defined volume and mass of material, and time constraints for heating this defined volume and mass of material. Our expert design review permits SiberSci, LLC to recommend one or more RF hardware configurations to satisfy these requirements.

Next, SiberSci, LLC can also review proprietary material specifications for this design effort using a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to protect the client’s business-sensitive information, Intellectual Property (IP), or Proprietary Data (PD) for this process or material. Performance and physical limitations for RF Heating concepts are documented during the review process.  Modifications to the concepts are documented to illustrate how each concept must be adapted to satisfy the client’s requirements for a specific material. If some portion of the client-defined performance specification is found to be physically impossible to achieve, then these problem areas are revealed. We also provide recommendations to circumvent these barriers to achieving the requisite performance.

RF Heating Engineering Computational ElectroMagnetics (CEM)

Also, SiberSci, LLC is experienced using Ansys HFSS as part of the Ansys Electronics Workbench, CST Microwave Studio, FEKO, Comsol, SONNET Software, and Keysight ADS and Genesys to support the Computational ElectroMagnetics (CEM) aspects of these programs. Clients can specify the use of one or more of these CEM tools for their project as long as the client provides a valid license for using the code, or pays for contract access to the code of choice. If the client is unable to select the appropriate CEM code for their project, then SiberSci, LLC is prepared to assist each client with selecting the appropriate CEM code(s) to ensure the success of their project.

The accuracy of CEM simulations for RF circuits is directly dependent upon the frequency and temperature-dependent properties of the materials used for building each circuit. For the metals and dielectrics, these frequency and temperature-dependent material properties (thermal conductivity, complex permittivity, loss tangent, electrical conductivity, density, specific heat,…) must be used to accurately simulate the circuits.

Finally, material properties must be accurately measured to be included in the CEM simulations. Laboratory and contract resources are available to determine these material properties, which are essential for providing accurate CEM simulations of circuits and systems. SiberSci, LLC provides each client with the capability to only use valid material properties for their CEM simulations.
