RF Heating Consulting
SiberSci, LLC provides RF Heating Consulting resources for both continuous flow and batch processing of ionic materials that include solids, films, powders, and liquids, and also for induction heating applications including metals and plasmas. SiberSci, LLC provides services for the theoretical analysis, design, development, fabrication, testing, validation, and optimization of RF heating systems for both laboratory and industrial applications. Our experience allows us to review the pertinent material properties, client defined temperature specifications for a defined volume and mass of material, time constraints for heating this defined volume and mass of material, from which SiberSci can make recommendations for one or more RF hardware configurations to satisfy these requirements. SiberSci can also review proprietary material specifications for these efforts using a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to protect the client’s business sensitive information, Intellectual Property (IP), or Proprietary Data (PD) for this process or material. Performance and physical limitations for RF heating concepts will be documented during the review process, and modifications to the concepts will be documented to illustrate how each concept must be adapted to satisfy the client requirements for a specific material. If some portion of the client defined performance specification is found to be physically impossible to achieve, then these problem areas will be revealed along with recommendations to circumvent these barriers for achieving the requisite performance.
SiberSci, LLC is experienced using Ansys HFSS with Ansys Multiphysics, and Comsol MultiPhysics to support the Computational ElectroMagnetics (CEM) aspects of these programs for temperature dependent simulations of materials. Clients can specify use of one or more of these CEM tools for their project as long as the client provides a valid license for using the code, or pays for contract access to the code of choice. If the client is unable to select the appropriate CEM code for their project, then SiberSci is prepared to assist each client with selecting the appropriate CEM codes(s) to ensure the success of their project.
It is important for each client to realize that the accuracy of CEM simulations are dependent upon the frequency and temperature dependent material properties (conductivity, permittivity, permeability, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, density, specific heat,…) of the metals and dielectrics used for fabricating their circuits, so these material properties must be measured so they can be included in the CEM simulations. Laboratory and contract resources are available to determine these material properties, which are essential for providing accurate CEM simulations of circuits and systems. SiberSci can provide each client with the capability to only use valid material properties for their CEM simulations.
In conclusion, please submit an inquiry for a RF Heating Consulting project to Dr. Scott Best, and clearly specify if a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is required to protect business sensitive information, Intellectual Property (IP), or Proprietary Data (PD). SiberSci will provide a NDA for review, negotiation, and amendment by the client to safeguard and protect their IP and PD. SiberSci will also provide a budgetary quotation and schedule for performing the client defined RF Heating Consulting effort after reviewing the performance and size requirements. Work on the RF Heating Consulting project will commence when a contract has been negotiated and legally executed by SiberSci and the client.RF-Heating-Consultant-CV-for-Dr.-Scott-Best-November-2015
