RF Heating applications include induction eddy current heating of metals, as well as 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. Induction heating is commonplace, as well as ionic conduction heating, which is not as obvious to a casual observer. However, 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 of an assortment of foods. RF Heating applications are typically enabled with equipment built for the specific volume of material to be heated, so contact SiberSci, LLC today to get started with your project.
SiberSci, LLC provides RF Heating Consulting resources for both continuous flow and batch processing of ionic materials that include solids, films, powders, and liquids, and also for induction heating applications including metals and plasmas. SiberSci, LLC provides services for the theoretical analysis, design, development, fabrication, testing, validation, and optimization of RF heating systems for both 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, time constraints for heating this defined volume and mass of material, from which SiberSci, LLC can make recommendations for one or more RF hardware configurations to satisfy these requirements. SiberSci, LLC can also review proprietary material specifications for these efforts 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 will be documented during the review process, and modifications to the concepts will be documented to illustrate how each concept must be adapted to satisfy the client 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 along with recommendations to circumvent these barriers for achieving the requisite performance.
SiberSci, LLC is experienced using Ansys HFSS as part of the Ansys Electronics Workbench, CST Studio Suite, and Comsol MultiPhysics, to support the Computational ElectroMagnetics (CEM) aspects of these programs for temperature-dependent simulations of materials. 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.
It is important for each client to realize that the accuracy of CEM simulations are dependent upon the frequency and temperature-dependent material properties (electrical conductivity, complex permittivity, relative permittivity, loss tangent, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, density, specific heat,…) of the metals and dielectrics used for fabricating their circuits, so these material properties must be measured so they can 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 can provide each client with the capability to only use valid material properties for their CEM simulations.

In conclusion, please submit an inquiry for an RF Heating Consulting project to Dr. Scott Best, and clearly specify if a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is required to protect business-sensitive information, Intellectual Property (IP), or Proprietary Data (PD). SiberSci, LLC will provide an NDA for review, negotiation, and amendment by the client to safeguard and protect their IP and PD. SiberSci, LLC will also provide a budgetary quotation and schedule for performing the client-defined RF Consulting effort after reviewing the performance and size requirements. Work on the RF Consulting project commences when a contract has been negotiated and legally executed by SiberSci, LLC and the client.
