New Macrowave™ Pasteurization Systems Available for Animal Feed Applications

Systems are designed for conveyorized treatments of either bagged or bulk animal feed products

Radio Frequency Company's Macrowave™ Pasteurization Systems, proven to eliminate pathogens in human food ingredients, are now also available for a wide range of animal feed products.  These systems are designed for conveyorized treatments of either bagged or bulk animal feed products.

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 alternating energy causes polar molecules in the material to continuously reorient them to face opposite poles much like the way bar magnets react in an alternating magnetic field.  The friction resulting from this molecular movement causes the material to heat both rapidly and uniformly throughout its entire mass, effectively eliminating pathogens, while leaving the nutritional values intact.

Radio Frequency Company 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 kill of salmonella and other harmful pathogens.  Systems are available for production rates ranging from 1,000 to 50,000 pounds per hour.
