The use of magnets in refrigerators and microwave ovens

Magnetic magnets are a natural phenomenon composed of iron, nickel and other elements that have the ability to attract or repel other ferromagnetic substances. Since ancient times, magnets have been used in a wide variety of applications such as motors, generators, speakers, tapes, disks, etc. However, the applications of magnets in daily life may not be well known. This article will explore the use of magnets and their role in refrigerators and microwaves.
First, let's look at the use of magnets in refrigerators. The refrigerator is one of the indispensable appliances in family life, used to preserve food and drinks and maintain their freshness and taste. In refrigerators, magnets are mainly used in components such as compressors, magnetic door seals, and brackets inside the refrigerator.
Compressor: The compressor of a refrigerator is mainly composed of an electric motor and a magnet. When the motor rotates, the magnetic field generated by the magnet interacts with the magnetic field of the motor to generate thrust, causing the compressor to work. This principle is called electromagnetic induction and is the basis of modern power systems.

Magnetic door seal: The door seal of the refrigerator is made of magnetic materials, such as neodymium iron boron magnets. When the door is closed, the magnetic field generated by the magnet holds the door tightly together, preventing air circulation and external gas from entering, ensuring that the temperature and humidity inside the refrigerator are maintained within the appropriate range.

Refrigerator internal brackets: The brackets inside the refrigerator are also usually made of magnetic materials, such as neodymium iron boron magnets. The purpose of these brackets is to provide support for various items in the refrigerator, such as bottle racks, vegetable racks, etc. In addition, some high-end refrigerators are equipped with magnetic knife holders to facilitate users to store knives.
Next, let’s discuss the use of magnets in microwave ovens. A microwave oven is a household appliance used to heat and cook food quickly. In microwave ovens, magnets are mainly used in components such as rotating disks, magnetrons and reflectors.

Rotating plate: The rotating plate of a microwave oven consists of a permanent magnet and a shaft. When the microwave oven is working, the permanent magnet on the shaft generates an alternating magnetic field, causing the rotating plate to rotate at high speed. This rotation method can make the food evenly heated under microwave radiation and improve the cooking effect.

Magnetron: The magnetron is the core component of the microwave oven and is responsible for generating microwave energy. There is a permanent magnet inside the magnetron. When current passes through the permanent magnet, a strong magnetic field is generated. This magnetic field interacts with metal reflectors installed at both ends of the magnetron to form a huge annular current loop. In this loop, electrons are excited and accelerated, ultimately producing high-energy microwave radiation.
Reflector: The reflector of a microwave oven is usually made of metal, such as silver, aluminum, etc. When microwave radiation encounters a reflector, some of the energy is reflected back into the microwave, where it interacts with the food on the rotating plate, heating the food. In addition, reflectors can help focus microwave energy so that it hits the food more concentratedly, improving heating efficiency.
In summary, the use of magnets in refrigerators and microwave ovens plays a vital role. They not only provide basic functional support for these appliances, but also achieve efficient and uniform heating and cooling effects through electromagnetic induction, magnetron and other technologies. With the development of science and technology, the application of magnets in the field of home appliances will become more extensive and in-depth, bringing more convenience and comfort to people's lives.

client purchase strong magnets"Since 2006, we found Mr.Guo and get products from him. We used magnets under the earth for the gas and water pipe industries. We have met no problem. We have been working in very happy ways. We have many cooperation. Every year, we spent time together and sometimes, we invited him to Korea. He is our younger brother. Strongly recommended!!"

customers buy permanent magnets"I had email to Mr. Guo for rare earth magnet requirements. They replied my e-mail promptly, and were very professional. Mr. Guo’s team still continues to deliver rare earth magnets to our agreed specifications with a very high quality standard since 2012. His team is very professional and thorough with its work. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend them."
