Ferrite Microwave Technologies (FMT) microwave systems are utilized for conversion and treatment of biosolids, biomass, & biowaste materials. Municipalities use our technology for waste treatment and disposal efforts. Other applications include sludge drying and processing. We’ve also built systems that power plasma incinerators for biowaste disposal.
Biosolids, Biomass, & Biowaste Microwave Systems Capabilities
An overview of Ferrite Microwave Technologies solutions for biosolids, biomass, and biowaste microwave systems includes the following capabilities:
- Partnership of IMS & Ferrite systems
- Planar & Continuous Heating & Drying
- Component support from Mega Industries
- Custom modeling and design for new applications
- Complete line of 75 & 100 kW industrial generators
- Strong understanding of industrial processing facilities
- Specialization in systems for products with high moisture content
- Experience integrating devices and systems into existing processes
- Microwave modeling of materials, cavity structures, launching mechanisms
Microwave Treatment of Biosolids
There is momentum in the biosolid fuel industry for converting grasses and other natural waste into wood chips or pellets for burning as fuel. Conventional manufacturing involes a long fire-heated barrel for compression. However, microwave heating provides an alternative.
Municipal Sludge & Biomass Treatment
Municipalities must remain EPA 504 regulatory compliant in waste treatment. However, EPA 504 regulatory compliance does nothing to remove the organic volatiles. Thermal intervention with microwaves makes the process cleaner. Microwave treatment not only satisfies EPA 504, it also makes it safer by removing the bacteria and pathogens that may otherwise eventually make it back into the food we grow.
Microwave Systems for Biowaste
Another application for microwave systems is hospital biowaste disposal and treatment. Ferrite Microwave Technologies has built systems that power plasma incinerators for biowaste disposal.
Our partners at IMS hold several patents for work with thermal treatment of biomaterials. IMS cylindrical heating technology can produce new products that conventional heaters cannot.
A New York based company is using an IMS heater for the Microwave Assisted Extraction (MAE) of plant protein cells to maximize yield and product quality of its biopharmaceutical products.
An Alabama based organization also uses MAE with ionic liquids to maximize the extraction of biochemicals from crustacean waste products.
As the pharmaceutical industry changes from batch production to continuous, IMS CHS technology is expected to play an increasing role in the rapid sterilization of high-value, heat sensitive intravenous and other fluids.
