# Induction Heating for Outgassing the Beamline

Hi,
I want to heat the FEL beamline for the outgassing process with an induction heater. What frequency should I use in the driver circuit of the heater?
The geometry of the beam line as you can imagine is cylindrical.

Can you test it? :D
Resonance should appear at the order of $T\approx \frac{radius}{c}$ and multiples of that value. But that needs a frequency in the MHz-range, I don't know if your induction heater works with that.
Don't rely on that, I did not heat any beamlines before.
