YD1173 – industrial air-cooled triode with output power 13.2 kW

The YD 1173 triode is intended for low power dielectric heating applications and delivers continuous RF power of 13.2 kW. It is especially well suited to industrial applications, such as plastic welding.
This air-cooled triode uses a coaxial design and metal-ceramic technology. It may be operated in CW or pulsemodes. For operation in pulse mode, the parameters depend on each equipment characteristics. Contact us for specific information.

Radio-frequency welding, also known as dielectric welding and high-frequency welding, is a plastic welding process that utilizes  high-frequency electric fields to induce heating and melting of thermoplastic base materials.
