VARIABLE HEATING METHODS AND RATES

Methods include resistive furnaces (convective, radiant), resistance (direct, capacitive), quartz heaters, and induction furnaces or coils providing heat rates up to 1100°C (2000°F) per second (conductive materials) and 120°C (250°F) per second (non-conductive materials).
