Abstract : The patent describes a safety load and temperature control system for microwave ovens wherein a variable volume of water is passed through the oven for controlling the amount of energy received by a work piece therein. Microwave energy from magnetron tubes is introduced into the oven chamber for processing a work piece. The variable supply of water within the chamber is increased for small parts being cured and decreased for large parts being cured. The water is passed through a dielectrically transparent vessel within the chamber and is heated by the microwave energy proportional to the heated work piece or part. The temperature of the water leaving the chamber is indicative of the rate of change of the work piece temperature.
