Abstract : Potential RF hazards for industrial heating systems become especially noteworthy as microwave/RF power in the realm of 10's of kilowatts are employed. A review of the RF bioeffects literature and safe exposure and emission standards is presented. Techniques for suppression of RF leakage are discussed. Thresholds for sensation, pain and RF burns, particularly under conditions of field concentration, are reviewed.
