The 6kW Fluid Heating Microwave System by IMS is a 2450 MHz Benchtop solution for processing liquid foods, fluids, chemicals, and more. This lab-scale microwave processing system is great for research and development, or lab experimentation prior to scale-up. IMS offers a series of modularized benchtop and commercial in-line systems.
To maximize efficiency, Industrial Microwave Systems (IMS) has patented single-mode applicators, to ensure a uniform energy field is focused, and located at the exact position as the product flowing through the heating tube.
Customized designs to meet specific process specifications and production floor footprints are available upon request.
Benefits of Heating Fluid with Microwave Systems
Compared to conventional heat exchangers, the cooler heat transfer surfaces and extremely short heating times experienced in an IMS 6kW Fluid Heating Microwave System minimize fouling deposits, color, nutrient, and flavor losses of pumpable biomaterials. Other benefits to processing fluids with microwaves include:
- Less residence times
- Faster reaction kinetics
- Improved product quality
- More even, uniform, consistent heating
- Reduce, or eliminate additives or catalysts
- Reduction in cost of system maintenance or cleaning
The 6kW Fluid Heating Microwave System is comprised of several key components. This includes:
- Tube Clamp Base (x2)
- Main Applicator Assembly
- 6kW, 2450 MHz Microwave Generator
This system uses either a 1/2″ or 3/4″ ID product heating tube to minimize the hold up volume and amount of test fluid required. We have the ability to test your product on a small-scale, benchtop microwave processing system.
IMS specializes in the rapid, continuous processing of high-value, heat and shear sensitive pumpable fluids.
The common products succesfully heated with our fluid heating microwave systems includes:
- Meat Slurries
- Chemical Extractions
- Diced and Sliced Foods
- Fruit and Vegetable Purees
