Induction and Dielectric Radio Frequency Processing in the Food Industry

Induction and dielectric heating are simple, precise methods of heating in common use in the food and beverage industries. These support a wide range of applications such as Post bake drying and moisture control.

  • Preheating of dough and cake mixes.
  • Rapid heating of tube-fed or conveyor fed products for both pre-cook and pasteurization/sterilization requirements.

Process Advantages

  • Reduces Checking – uneven stresses in the product are eliminated as a result of evening the product moisture profile
  • Product Color Control – in the RF process, allows color and moisture control to be separated
  • Energy Savings – unlike conventional equipment the efficiency of the high-frequency oven is only marginally reduced at low moisture levels
  • Avoids Pollution – there are no byproducts of combustion
  • Increased Production – throughput of a typical oven line can be increased by as much as 50% on certain products without an increase in overall plant length.
  • Floor Space Savings – efficient heat transfer results in faster product transfer and reduced oven length
  • Rapid Heating – of doughs and other Food Product
  • Improves Efficiency – of conventional oven lines
  • Automatically Compensates – for variations in product moisture
  • Automatically profiles for uniform moisture content
  • Eliminates Centre Bone – increases shelf life
