Radio Frequency Dryers
The RF drying easily solves checking problems in baked products, ensuring a uniform moisture levelling and furthermore increasing the production rate by 20%-30%
The RF technology is particularly suitable for the postbaking drying of baked products (biscuits, crackers, crispbread, etc..). Indeed, final moisture reduction and levelling is a difficult task to achieve in baking ovens: due to the crust formation during baking, moisture evaporation takes about 60% of the energy of the entire process and about 30% of the overall oven length. Differently, Radio Frequency is selective towards water and ensures drying in minutes with no surface over-baking or excessive colouring. Hundreds of RF post-baking dryers have been installed in industrial bakeries in the last 40 years, making it the most popular RF drying application in the food sector.

RF Defrosting of meat, fish and vegetables
RF defrosters ensure a rapid and uniform defrosting process, eliminating the need for large thawing rooms/chambers and cutting handling costs.
Conventional thawing systems (still air thawing, forced air/blast thawing, water sprinkling, water immersion systems, etc..) are slow and often generate product waste due to the poor process control. Differently, RF defrosting is an endogenous and instantaneous method that delivers the product ready for the next step in a few minutes: the product to be defrosted, either in blocks or IQF, is placed on the conveyor belt of the RF machine and is submitted to rapid dielectric heating that brings its temperature just below the melting point of water, with no drip loss or bacterial deterioration. In this way, other than saving time and preserving quality, last-minute orders can be easily managed and product waste is completely avoided. Furthermore, being a continuous and in-line process, multiple handling is eliminated, with huge savings in labour cost.
