Susceptor Heating

A susceptor is typically used for the induction heating of materials such as polymers and ceramics which are not electrically conductive. The susecptor is heated by induction, while heat is transferred to the work material by conduction. Typical susceptor material include graphite, silicon carbide, molybdenum, stainless steels and virtually any conductive material. A key factor in susceptor selection is that the melting point of the susceptor materials is higher than the processing temperature of the work material to be heated inside it.
