Macrowave System Dries Using Volumetric Heating

The Macrowave RF rapid drying system from Radio Frequency Co.

A new radio frequency (RF) rapid drying system for temperature sensitive materials such as filter cake and granular or palletized materials is available from Radio Frequency Co.

The Macrowave RF drying system uses volumetric heating, which keeps the temperature uniform throughout temperature sensitive materials, reduces the moisture content to levels as low as 200 parts per million and eliminates the long dwell times required by conventional surface heating methods.

The Macrowave removes water from material at bed depths up to 6 in. and applies radio waves at a frequency of 40.68 MHz. It is a suitable replacement for tumble, spray, tray, spin flash and belt/tunnel dryers.
