Macrowave Post-Baking Dryers utilize radio frequency (RF) energy, which preferentially heats and dries the moist areas of cookies, crackers and snack foods to eliminate surface checking and control moisture and colour. The units remove the drying requirement from ovens, allowing bakers to maintain their oven settings while achieving the product colour goals in the last third of an oven line.

RF heating is a highly efficient, direct form of heating which ensures that no energy is wasted while heating large volumes of air or preheating the system itself. The technology is “instant on, instant off,” using energy only during the treatment process. The dryers are available in band widths of up to 64” wide.
