Temperature Monitoring in Microwave Drying

Microwave drying, unlike conventional drying, is faster and can boost up the drying rate from the initial stage till the last stage of drying. This helps in preserving the quality, color, texture, and taste of the dried food.

Temperature monitoring is very crucial in keeping the highest quality control in microwave food drying. Fiber Optic sensing technology is by far the best technology in temperature monitoring of samples during microwave drying. The Fiber optic temperature sensors can work effectively in a harsh microwave environment of 300MHz to 300GHz and radiofrequency of 100 kHz to 100 MHz.

Temperature Monitoring in Microwave Digestion

Microwave heating is very popular for quick and selective digestion of materials in various industries e.g. Food and feed, Pharmaceutical, Chemistry, Environmental, etc. The sample is mixed into an acid mixture and heated to high temperature to create digestion sample. Temperature monitoring and control is necessary in creating right sample without damage to the reactors.

Fiber optic sensors for temperature and pressure measurement have been widely successful in microwave assisted digestion applications due their immunity to electromagnetic field within the microwaves.
