Cylindrical Heating Systems

IMS Cylindrical Heating Systems provide a unique solution which is best utilized for the continuous thermal processing of heat and shear sensitive, high viscosity, and multiphase materials that demand precise temperature control.

Planar Heating Systems

IMS Planar Heating and Drying Systems can offer a better alternative to conventional, re-circulated hot air dryers due to the best-in-class uniformity, efficiency and thermal processing they demonstrate in many industrial processes.

Cylindrical Heating Systems

Although an IMS CHS can be used for many product and process applications, including heating, cooking/gelation, pasteurization and sterilization, its specific benefits and economic advantages are best achieved when applied to heat or shear sensitive, high viscosity and multi-phase fluids.

Planar Heating Systems

An IMS Planar Heating System has advantages over conventional dryers in two areas of their design that are intrinsically inefficient: (1) pre-heating a product to evaporative temperature, and (2) removing water from products with relatively low overall moisture content.

Cylindrical Heating Systems

Each CHS heats a single or multiphase product as it is pumped through a microwave-transparent heating tube located in the center of the cylindrical heating chamber or applicator.  The volumetric heating that results from the agitation of the polar molecules in the product means that no hot tube sidewalls are required for heat transfer. 

As a result, an IMS CHS allows processors to improve their product cost effectiveness and quality, reduce equipment footprint or floor space, and in some cases create new or enhanced pumpable products.  This is due to the cool wall surface temperature of the microwave heating tube, combined with the minimal residence time and uniform ultra-rapid heating of the product.  This combination is achieved without the fouling, maintenance and replacement part costs associated with conventional hot surface heat exchangers.
