In many cases the Gyrotron Beam can be a cost effective alternative for drying organic and non-organic materials, polymer resins, ceramics, paints, etc. Benefits include reduced space requirements, lower operating costs and enhanced production.
In addition to the Beam's ability to ultra rapidly and exclusively heat water and other liquid solvents, it allows the incorporation of the process directly into the production line, reducing space requirements and wetness (even to 0% including ). Examples include drying fiberglass, drying pulp and paper, paints, enamels coatings, etc. The Gyrotron Beam can also be used for drying materials that are sensitive to heat. All these tasks cannot be accomplished by using conventional heat sources such as hot air, gas, infrared, etc.
