Spheric Technologies Signs Exclusive North & South America Distribution Agreement with China’s Syno-Therm for Industrial Microwave Furnaces


Spheric Technologies, Inc., marketer of patented microwave powdered metal processing systems, and producer of advanced oxides and other ceramic powders, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for industrial microwave furnaces produced by China’s Changsha Syno-Therm Co., Ltd., covering all of North and South America.

Syno-Therm is China’s largest microwave furnace producer, with current marketing operations in China, Japan, India and Europe. Based in Hunan Province, Syno-Therm offers a full line of continuous and batch industrial units as well as laboratory units. These systems are widely used in metallurgy and in the ceramic and chemical industries, especially for powder metallurgy, carbides, magnetic materials, structural ceramics, functional ceramics, porcelains and various chemical raw materials.

“Our equipment is particularly valued for high-temperature processing of advanced materials, with high efficiency, energy economization and environmental protection,” said Syno-Therm Chairman Dr. Hu Peng. “We have great confidence in our new U.S. partner, Spheric Technologies, and look forward to their introduction of our furnaces throughout the Americas.”

Spheric Technologies President Joseph Hines said his company has already begun marketing Syno-Therm furnaces together with sublicenses for microwave sintering (binding powders at high temperature, without melting), based on technology patents awarded to Penn State’s world-recognized Microwave Processing and Engineering Center and licensed exclusively to Spheric Technologies. Microwave furnaces reduce energy use by up to 80%, at 1/10th the throughput time, compared to conventional sintering (according to a report by Penn State and Japan’s National Institute for Fusion Science).

“Syno-Therm is one of the few producers of high-temperature industrial microwave equipment,” Hines added. “We’re delighted to be handling their excellent product line.”
