As an effort towards designing a microwave-heated continuous fine-chemicals production plant, the suitability of two state-of-the-art, mono- and multimode microwave equipment types was elucidated. Based on the feasibility study, a conceptual design of a microwave setup consisting of four cavities with all the required flexibility and applicability was realized and evaluated for its heating performance.
