About our industrial microwave technology

Trials of our microwave drying technology have delivered 80% quicker processing time and over 75% in energy savings which enables businesses to remain competitive against the lower-waged economies.

How does industrial microwave heating work?

Industrial microwave heating is a dielectric heating process. The microwave energy converts into heat energy due to the polar structure of the molecules, atoms and ions.
The supply of energy effects without intermediary heating elements and therefore the process has no inertia. The production of heat is within the material itself and therefore without thermal dissipation. Only the product is warming up and not its environment.

Changing electro-magnetic field (frequency) causes the molecules to flip their orientations back and forth. When they move, they rub against each other and this friction converts some of their energy into thermal energy.

Our leading edge microwave technology provides major competitive advantages to processing sectors that require highly efficient drying, heating, curing or irradiation via microwave energy.

The UK climate change levy requires industries to enter into voluntary emissions reduction schemes. Businesses are therefore under increasing pressure to invest in technologies that can radically reduce processing costs and emissions.

We have a demonstration 24KW microwave in Rotherham where we can demonstrate the benefits to you free of charge. Beyond this we can provide a feasibility study to determine the practicality and benefits to your organisation.
