Electrothermal processing by microwave field is one of the perspective methods of exposure on materials, biological objects, agricultural and food-stuffs and so the investigations in this direction are rather urgent for national economy [1, 2].

The authors developed economical technologies allowing to produce high-quality gypsum binder, casein and other building materials, as well as technologies and designs for drying grain, fruits, vegetables and other agricultural and food-stuffs using a combined multifunction method by the way of direct influence on the material by a hot air and microwave energy [3, 4].

In the report are stated rational, from the point view of economy, variants of construction of plants of combined type. Below main features of proposed technologies and designs of plants are given.
