An induction-heated mixer

Advanced Induction Heating

While induction heating in industrial applications has been in widespread use for many years, particularly within the metal processing industries, there is now increasing interest in this versatile technology for other heating applications. Induction heating can be particularly useful for products which might be sensitive to excess heating, thereby creating a spoiled product, or in applications where heat is required to be applied in difficult geometries. C-Tech Innovation has extensive design and build capabilities for this kind of specialist induction heating equipment.

Batch Ohmic Heater

Food processing using ohmic heating reduces the need for preservatives and results in superior taste and texture compared to other thermal treatment methods such as jacketed vessels, heat exchanges or steam injection. The Qulom OBA-26 is an ideal tool for R&D and recipe development at temperatures up to 100ºC. For higher temperatures we offer a prerssurised batch unit the Qulom OBP-26, capable of operating at up to 150ºC. Read More

Food cooking

Conventional cooking of foods relies on conduction from hot surfaces into the food. This can limit the rate of cooking, especially in products with large solid particles. By using the food’s own electrical resistance to generate the heat using C-Tech Innovation’s Ohmic Heaters, food can be heated evenly from within. The result is greatly increased cooking rates whilst maintaining the highest product quality. Read More

Silent Kettles

The benefits of ohmic heating are currently being transferred into everyday items. Miniaturised, the technology can be employed in a kettle, offering a completely silent boil. Ohmic heating also resists the effects of scale. it has been shown to greatly prolong the life of a kettle in hard water areas compared to conventional elements. Likewise, electrically heated showers will not lose performance due to scale build up. Other items such as steam irons and instant water heaters are in development.
