Pasteurization systems

March 1, 2011




An alternative to gasses, radiation or carbon-producing thermal techniques, Radio Frequency Co. Macrowave Ultra-Series pasteurization systems apply a high-frequency electric field to control pathogens in food. Products are conveyed through the high-frequency electrode array where the alternating electrical energy causes them to heat rapidly and uniformly throughout their thickness; the food products are not exposed to elevated temperatures for long durations. The technology is “instant-on/instant-off,” using energy only during the treatment process.
