New Bulk Pasteurization Systems

Radio Frequency Co.’s new Macrowave pasteurization systems are ideal for batch or conveyorized applications for bagged or bulk product.

In a Macrowave heating system, an RF generator creates an alternating electric field between two electrodes. The material to be treated is conveyed through an electrode array where this alternating energy causes polar molecules in the material to continuously reorient themselves to face opposite poles much like the way bar magnets behave in an alternating magnetic field. The friction resulting from molecular movement causes the material to heat both rapidly and uniformly throughout its entire mass.

Radio Frequency Co. has developed a line of energy-saving Macrowave pasteurization systems that operate at 40MHz where the depth of penetration and uniformity of heating are optimized, thereby ensuring effective microbe kill and avoiding deleterious effects on product quality.  

The company offers a full line of systems for the bulk pasteurization and/or insect deinfestation of nut meats, spices, pasta, tobacco, fishmeal, xanthan gum, food ingredients, and other various products either bagged or in bulk, requiring pasteurization.
