Drying consists of providing heat to accelerate evaporation of volatile organic compounds present in an item. For example the ones present in water, solvents in paints, etc.

Drying is a process used in the manufacture of a wide range of products. The fields where we can apply induction are those that require direct or indirect heating through a metallic element.


  • Direct: automotive disc brakes
  • Indirect: drying of paper

There are several methods to achieve the drying process, such as microwave, infrared and electrical resistance. However induction offers a number of advantages over these methods.

Induction heating advantages:

  • Energy saving
  • Reduced processing time
  • Temperature control
  • Localized heating
  • Possibility of integration into production lines
  • No contact
  • Improved working environment

Industries related to this process are automotive, industrial applications, oil and gas.
