This represents a significant improvement in microwave heat-sink technology and will allow for a new type of very compact and efficient microwave generator.
Edinburgh, UK (PRWEB UK) 19 March 2015
Emblation Limited, a global leader in medical microwave technology, has announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application No. 13/810320, with claims that cover methods for compact thermal interfacing in medical and industrial microwave applications.
Gary Beale, Emblation CEO, stated, “this Notice of Allowance represents a significant improvement in microwave heat-sink technology applicable to industrial and medical microwave generators. Emblation is proud to be at the forefront of what is a rapidly growing field of medicine, and the further implementation of this technology will allow for a new type of very compact and efficient microwave generator.”
One of the challenges facing product designers in the field of microwave ablation is how to accommodate the necessary cooling requirements for high power microwave devices. This has traditionally constrained designers and resulted in bulky enclosures, which is in stark contrast to modern compact product design approach. This also presents logistical and marketing constraints in dealing with large heavy equipment boxes which do not aesthetically complement the compact medical devices they support.
This new patent covers a novel method of creating an efficient compact cooling solution that improves the cooling efficiency and significantly compresses the overall size of enclosure required for microwave generators compared to using traditional heat-sinking techniques.
