This may be attributed to the fact that at SPL lower than 130 dB, the packets do not get sufficient momentum to carry the heat from the heating surface. Graph 4 show variations of local heat transfer coefficients with excess air velocity ([u.sub.g]-[u.sub.mf]) at different values of SPL.
Their unique deep-well shape reduces the chance of sticking and cracking while also maximizing the heating surface area further, contributing to faster heat up.
