Induction Heating Magnetic Iron Oxide

Induction Heating Magnetic Iron Oxide in water for hyperthermia application

Objective Heating magnetic iron oxide (Fe2O3) in water for hyperthermia application to determine the curve of temperature vs. time during induction heating
Material Magnetic iron oxide in water (magnetic field is 50-200kHz, 30kA/m), glass vial
Temperature Varies
Frequency 344 kHz
Equipment • DW-UHF-4.5kW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing two 0.33μF capacitors for a total of 0.66 μF
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A two turn helical coil is used to heat the glass vial. The temperature vs. time results are:
• 66º – 107 ºF (19º – 42 ºC) in 10 seconds
• 66º – 145 ºF (19º – 63 ºC) in 20 seconds
• 66º – 170 ºF (19º – 77 ºC) in 30 seconds
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Rapid & localized heating
• Uniform controllable heat
• Small bench top footprint
• Even distribution of heating
