The Elements of Induction and Dielectric Heating
Gearhart, Robert E., Department of Engineering, University of Virginia
The uses of induction and dielectric heating in industry has become very important. These methods of generalizing heat in the material itself have many distinct advantages over the conventional methods of heating.
Induction heating uses an inductor coil to set up a magnetic field around a metallic substance. When these currents encounter resistance, heat is produced. Dielectric heating makes use of alternating current at high frequencies to generate heat in nonmetallic masses.
Obtaining the high-frequencies at which these heaters operate is an important problem. The present use and the future uses of these two types of heating is manifold.
