This tutorial video shows how to operate a batch microwave system. This is the basic load and operating procedure for the FMT MIP-10.
How To Operate: Batch Microwave System Basics
The basic system consists of a 50-inch by 42-inch (1.3 meter by 1.1 meter) microwave oven. In addition, it comes with one FMT GET 2024 75 kilowatt microwave generator and a loading table on convenient rollers. The oven size permits a uniform loading procedure for the simultaneous processing of one 10-inch high (254 millimeter) tier of containers. Place product on the 40-inch by 48-inch loading table.
Processing food with the FMT microwave oven retains protein and flavor compounds for tastier, fresher products. With the MIP-10 installed, tempering rooms and the resulting drip or liquid runs that are common in the food processing industry are eliminated.
The product transports on a 5-foot by 5-foot (1.5 meter by 1.5 meter) heavy duty plastic pallet mounted on rollers.
In one shift, it automatically and precisely raises the temperature for 3,000 pounds of frozen product to 28 degrees Fahrenheit.
Interlocking access doors on the generators meet all applicable government (OSHA and Health and Human Services) safety standards. These doors provide a safe operating environment.
FMT: Leaders in Batch Microwave Systems
We are the leader in industrial microwave oven development. FMT offers the widest variety of batch cooking and processing ovens on the market. The MIP-10 provides uniform heating for consistent, efficient tempering of product at very low starting temperatures.
Batch microwave systems are more apt for applications with hourly throughput under 2,000 lbs. per hour. There is no minimum loading requirement and the footprint is smaller than comparable continuous systems. If your application involves a myriad of different products or relatively low throughput, a batch microwave system may suit you better than a continuous tunnel.
