Industrial Microwave Systems and Ferrite Microwave Technologies
Resultant of IMS joining Microwave Techniques in 2021, the group now offers the widest line of microwave drying and heating systems in the industry.
IMS High Moisture Heating and Drying
Our patented high moisture applicators eliminate hot spots by uniformly heating thick materials of high moisture content that easily absorb microwave energy. These units offer an effective solution to challenging microwave heating and drying applications.
FMT Microwave Heating and Drying System
Ferrite Microwave Technologies MIP9 microwave heating and drying systems are used in food and other industrial settings. These units increase throughput up to 25% or greater, drastically improving the performance of an existing processing line.
IMS Planar Heating and Drying
The IMS planar microwave heating and drying systems can offer a better alternative to conventional, re-circulated hot air dryers due to their best-in-class uniformity, efficiency, and thermal processing they demonstrate in many industrial processes.
2450 MHz Microwave Systems
IMS manufactures lab-scale 2450 MHz microwave drying and heating systems for low-volume, high-value applications. These units are typically for rapid heating and sterilization applications. This includes: food, beverage, and flavor processing, as well as for use in pharmaceutical and applications. As laboratory scale units, they are ideal for stand-alone bench top settings. Alternatively, they can integrate into existing conventional heating systems.
915 MHz Microwave Systems
IMS and Ferrite Microwave Technologies develop several standard and modularized 915 MHz microwave drying and heating systems. Whether clients are seeking solutions for chemicals heating, beverage processing, treatment of building materials, or drying textiles – we have deep experience and understanding of working with an assortment of materials. Commercial-scale units available in single- and multi-mode configuration.
Solutions for Fluids, Pumpable Foods & Chemicals
Cylindrical heating technology by IMS provides uniform and continuous flow heating for foods, beverages, nutraceuticals, aseptic products, gels, biomaterials, and more. These specially designed heating systems uniquely provide microwave energy to pumpable materials flowing through a pipe.
