Ferrite Microwave Technologies (FMT) meat tempering microwave systems process beef, pork, chicken, sausage, bacon, and various other meats. Many processed meat products like hamburgers, steaks, canned meats, and pet foods are items that rely heavily on frozen ingredients. One of the more challenging aspects of any frozen food manufacturing process is portion controlling. Luckily, FMT’s meat tempering microwave systems allow for ease of portion controlling and overall product handling during the next step processes. From pressing and blending, to slicing and dicing – our complete line of solutions are built to assist frozen meat and other food processors in terms of time, safety, product quality, and cost.

Portion Control Processing with Meat Tempering Systems
Set up precise meat tempering with the FMT MIP10. The unit comes with precise computer controls, enabling predictability for temperature increases, which then equips users with better final product temperature attainment. Widely popular for its abilities with protein retainment and flavor compounds, the MIP10 is ideal for portion-control meat plants, sausage kitchens, and beef and poultry operations.
|85% Lean Beef||26°F||4 minutes|
|50% Lean Beef||22°F||2 minutes|
See the table to the right for typical time required to temper 300 pound loads of meat in a 75 kW MIP10 unit from 0°F (-18°C) starting temperature.
The Ferrite MIP12
Our flagship system can temper up to 17,000 lbs. (7,700 kg) of product per hour. As a continuous belt-driven system, it allows users to more accurately control product for further action. This high-volume system is the quintissential meat tempering system for a variety of protein-based products.

Meat Tempering Systems: MIP4
The MIP4 Meat Tempering System is for small to medium volume throughputs of meat. While it may be a more compact layout, it proves as advantageous in limited space settings and on-the-go food prep locations. This reliable batch-type system tempers a 50 pound (23 kg) box of frozen meat in just 1 minute.
