induction heating nanoparticle solution in order to get it to rise 40 ºC
Induction heating is a convenient and flexible method that can deliver high-intensity magnetic fields to nanoparticles to achieve concentrated and targeted treatment, which has aroused great interest in the medical research community. Induction heating systems are used in hyperthermia to generate alternating magnetic fields in the laboratory to increase and manage the temperature of nanoparticle solutions in vitro or (in animal studies) in vivo.
Our nanoparticle induction heating system can meet your research power and frequency needs, providing precise adjustable power levels from 1 kW to 10 kW and a configurable frequency range from 150kHz to 400kHz. A core field strength of up to 125 kA/m can be achieved.
Heat a nanoparticle solution to get it to increase at least 40 ºC for medical research/laboratory testing
Material • Customer supplied nanoparticle solution
Temperature: 104 ºF (40 ºC) increase
Frequency: 217 kHz
Equipment • DW-UHF-5kW 150-400 kHz induction heating system equipped with a remote heat station containing two 0.3 µF capacitors
• A single-position 7.5 turn helical induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application
Induction Heating Process:
The client supplied seven samples to be tested for ten minutes to determine whether the temperature would increase 40 ºC from ambient temperature. During testing, the nanoparticle solution began at a temperature of 23.5 ºC and finished at 65.4ºC, indicating the temperature can increase 40 ºC from ambient temperature.
The results are dependent on the concentration and particle type. Should the client think larger scale testing will be required in the future, a 10kW UHF would provide considerable room for nanoparticle testing growth.
• Speed: Induction rapidly heated the solution, which met the client’s requirements
• Even heating: Induction’s rapid, even heating with precise temperature control is ideal for nanoparticle heating
• Repeatability: Induction’s results are predictable and repeatable – critical traits for nanoparticle heating
• Portability: UHF induction heat systems are small, so they can be moved around the lab with ease
