Read more on page 34 Microwave Mixer System microwave and a mixer has proven to cut the process time of conventional methods by up to one half, providing signifi- cant energy savings potential. Other benefits include tem- perature precision, uniform heating, reduced carbon emis- sions, and easy cleanup and maintenance. The microwave mixer system is available in virtually any vessel size for any industry where consistent energy efficient volumetric heat- ing application is required. Microwave mixing has proven successful in both sanitary and non-sanitary applications including chemicals, plastics, minerals, textiles, food, waste- to-energy, and recycling.

The DC Series is constructed with seam-welded panels to eliminate filter bypass and the escape of dirty air back into the facility that may occur with bolt-on panel construction. The direct-drive motor/blower design eliminates drive belt replacement, reducing mainte- nance downtime and costs. More efficient than constant- speed blower designs, its variable frequency drive blower reduces total in-use power consumption by modulating fan speed while maintaining the required static pressure during the fluctuating power needs of an application. The Vibra- Pulse filter cleaning system extends filter life and reduces replacement costs.
