BENEFITS OF FIBER OPTIC SENSOR

Food & Beverage SOLUTIONS
Optimize Food Pasteurization and Sterilization

RF/Microwave pasteurization and sterilization provides homogenous heating rate and reduces the process time. Reduced process time preserves the high quality of the food. The crucial point in food pasteurization and sterilization is knowing the right temperature for destruction of microorganisms and achieving/maintaining temperature. 

Fiber optic temperature sensors are accurate and safer to use in RF/microwave environment. Our bio-safe sensors are specially designed for food processing industry. The fast-responsive sensor and monitor are ideal for maintaining the pasteurization temperature.

Microwave Assisted Drying of Food and Fodder

In food drying, RF/microwave heating accelerates the drying process and prevents sensorial and nutritional damages of food. Most of the food processing industry players are using combined microwave-air-dryers (Pre-air-drying, followed by cyclical microwave vacuum drying and post-air-drying). 

Our rugged and fast responsive fiber optic temperature sensors are used in monitoring the food temperature during drying process. These biosafe sensors do not impose any risk of contaminating food during drying process. The built-in relay outputs in monitors allow intermittent microwave heating.

RF/Microwave Assisted Baking and Cooking

Microwave baking enhances the throughput with high quality results such as crust formation, surface browning, better starch, and high porosity etc. The microwave heating is also used in many pre-cooking applications like meat patties and bacon. 

Rugged Monitoring’s fiber optic (FO) temperature sensor is microwave proof and biosafe. The fast responsive and ultra-rugged sensors are chemically inert and does not contaminate food.  The fiber optic temperature sensors and monitors are being used in controlling microwave heating so that highest quality food is produced with uniform heating.

Food Thawing & Tempering using RF/Microwave

Microwave heating for thawing and tempering of frozen food generates heat within the food. The uniform heating of food across all layers avoids the issue of bacterial multiplication, food spoilage and food poisoning. Thawing time and temperature are critical in maintaining the quality of food.

Our fiber optic temperature sensors are widely being used in food processing industry because the sensors do not contaminate the food. The specially designed sensors and monitors provide real time temperature monitoring of the food and enable cyclical microwave heating.

RF/Microwave Assisted Food Blanching

Microwave assisted blanching in fruits and vegetables inactivates the enzyme system before their freezing, drying, frying, canning, and packaging. Blanching is a moderate heating process that helps in cleansing, decreasing microbial content, and exhausting gases from plant tissues.

Fiber optic temperature sensors enabled microwave blanching helps to control the heating while preserving the flavor, color and texture of fruits and vegetables. The sensors and monitor also ensure better heat distribution, temperature equilibrium and repeatability of the process.

Multi-element Analysis of Food using Digestion

Food regulations are constantly being updated for limiting the presence of trace metals in food materials. Microwave assisted digestion is being used in all ICP and ICP-MS processes for faster and quality sample creation. Fast responsive temperature measurement system and control is needed to maintain quality and avoid sample spillage from digestion reactors.

The fiber optic temperature sensors are safe to be placed inside microwave at high pressure. The sensors and monitor have high accuracy with fast response (within 35ms), that makes them ideal choice for microwave digestion of food samples.
