CW Industrial Heating and Cooking Magnetrons: L-Band and S-Band

CWM Product Series

  • Applications in food processing, drying, curing, plasmas and linear accelerators
  • 896, 915, 922, 929 and 2450 MHz
  • Up to 100kW Output at 88% efficiency
  • Water-cooled anode, external electromagnet
  • Economical rebuild capability

L3 EDD's L-band & S-band Industrial CW magnetrons are the predominant high-power tubes for use in commercial microwave cooking, other heating, drying and curing applications, and in plasma generation and linear accelerators.

Delivering high output levels and efficiencies over long lifetimes, L3 EDD's magnetrons set the standards for performance and cost-effectiveness.

Waveguide launchers, electromagnets, circulators and water loads are available from L3 EDD for all tube types.

All models are readily available, with a typical 2-4 week lead-time, depending on quantity.

L3 EDD will also rebuild your magnetrons for economical, extended service, generally with a typical 8 week turnaround.
