Our Industrial Microwave Systems are used to dry, boost-heat, temper or fully cook food items. Microwave energy has been utilized by the food processing sector since the 1970s for bacon cooking and the uniform tempering of deep frozen products. Recent advances have opened up new applications for drying and boost heating certain foodstuffs. All of our products are FSMA and FDA compliant and constructed of food-grade materials. We can also add microwave power to existing food processing equipment, like an industrial blender.
Microwave systems are widely used for tempering deep frozen beef, pork, poultry and fish. Replacing
conventional processes like tempering rooms, our MIP12 continuous tempering system is capable of accomplishing the task in a matter of minutes. Our blog post on the benefits of microwave tempering is a must read for anyone considering alternatives to tempering rooms or conventional ovens. Besides the obvious time savings, major benefits include higher protein yield, less mess and energy efficiency.
Food products like spices, snacks and other bulk products often need to be finish dried once they are processed. Microwave drying systems provide the flexibility to adjust throughput without costly heating and cooling cycles necessary for conventional drying.
Microwave boost heating oven significantly increases processing speeds and yields to an existing conventional cooking line. Boost Ovens are used to quickly and uniformly increase product temperatures prior to the finish cook process, thereby reducing dwell times and increasing throughput by as much as 30%. The process also has been shown to increase overall yields as moisture does not get driven off in the effort to reach minimum cook temperatures.
The majority of the microwave cooking market is pre-cooked bacon. That’s because the vast majority of the pre-cooked bacon in the world in processed with microwave systems like the MIP11. Learn why our Bacon Cooking lines are the preferred choice of some of the largest bacon producers in the world.
