Ferrite Microwave Technologies (FMT) microwave tempering tunnels for defrosting fish, poultry, meat, and a variety of other frozen foods.
FMT offers a complete line of microwave tempering tunnels and batch tempering systems – from our MIP-4 Mini Batch Tempering System and MIP-10 Batch Tempering Processor – to our flagship MIP-12 Tempering System, which can temper up to 17,000 lbs. (7,700 kg) of product per hour.
MICROWAVE TEMPERING & DEFROSTING
Microwave tempering and defrosting are critical to the food processing industry. Since the 1970s, microwave energy has been applied to deep frozen food products, such as beef, poultry, and fish.
The process of tempering with industrial microwave systems replaces the need for entire rooms dedicated to the process. In addition to the evident time and space savings, tempering proves beneficial as higher protein yields and flavor compounds remain in the product. Our food production clients who temper with industrial microwave systems see lesser amounts of mess and higher levels of energy efficiency.
SIMPLIFY THE TEMPERING PROCESS
Overall, tempering tunnels are able to process more product with less labor. For most applications, we highly recommend a tempering tunnel.
Here are some of the highlights to tempering with our MIP-12 tunnel:
- Continuous tempering on demand
- Add flexibility to food processing sequences
- Enables predictable final product temperature
- Assists with product quality and temperature control
- Improves total output and maximizes final yield
- Minimizes drip losses
- Helps retain protein and flavor compounds
- Precise control of input and output on a daily, weekly or monthly basis
Microwave systems are widely used for tempering deep frozen beef, pork, poultry and fish. Replacing conventional processes like tempering rooms, our MIP-12 continuous tempering tunnel 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.
