Continuous flow processing that enables pasteurization and sterilization of sensitive products. This process may be applied for Extended Shelf Life, Hot Fill, and Aseptic operations.
Indirect Heating vs. Direct Microwave Heating
In conventional forms of continuous flow processing, heat is introduced at the outside of the pipe and works its way to the coldest point on the inside. This creates the potential for over-heating at the surface of the pipe that can result in reduced product quality and increased fouling.
Continuous flow microwave processing is a volumetric form of heating that produces rapid, consistent, yet gentle heating that yields better quality and less burn on.
Processing time typically < 1 minute
Uses 1/10 the pipe length of tubular systems
Reduce / eliminate burning and fouling
Even / consistent heating throughout the product
Reduced maintenance and cleaning requirements
Ideal for processing the most sensitive products
