In Crystal Growing, crystalline materials are heated for up to 6 continuous weeks to produce crystals, which are then used in a variety of industrial markets.
In Crystal Growing, crystalline materials are heated using a susceptor in a controlled inert atmosphere or inert vacuum chamber zirconium for to 950° and higher. By tightly controlling temperatures for up to a period of 6 continuous weeks, manufacturers are able to produce high quality crystals, to be used in a variety of industrial markets. Common materials used in crystal growing include silicon, sapphire, rubies, and cubic zirconia.
Induction Crystal Growing provides a number of key benefits, including: maintaining temperatures with little variation; tight process control ensuring a high quality end product; reliable modular system that is easily maintained and service; and efficient operation across a wide frequency range. Typical industries for crystal growing are research labs; crystals for photovoltaic cells; sapphires for bulletproof glass; and silicon for integrated circuits (ICs).
