Microwave Feeds
Rely On MACHWAVE™ Technology for Bacon and Tempering Systems. Circular Polarized Feeds Decrease System Arcs While Improving Heating Uniformity!
The MACHWAVE™ Polarized Feed is a refined circularly polarized high power microwave feed. Its design provides improved uniformity of the electrical fields by improving the overall microwave electrical characteristics of previous designs.
Rotary Antenna Feeds

Machlett also offers an improved generation of Rotary Antenna feeds, which employ solid copper shafts and are a far superior conductor than the brass, aluminum and copper tube employed by others. The improved tuning and matching characteristics make it a preferred rotary over the ones sold by AMTek. This reduces the arcing and burning effects inside the ovens and the melting of the circular dish antennas that is common with all AMTek feed designs.

Machlett Feeds Deliver Huge Savings!
Replacing competitor’s rotary feeds on bacon and tempering systems with a Machlett Circular Polarized Feed will typically account for a 10-15% gain in the delivered power. This directly relates to a throughput improvement. It also eliminates all maintenance costs associated with the rotary feeds. On a typical bacon line these costs can be $100-$150,000 per year. Machlett direct replacement rotary feeds have enhanced tuning and removable cavity mounting plates for improved maintenance access and lower repair costs. The solid copper shafts are far more efficient than brass shafts that are employed in the competitor’s rotary feeds. This is crucial for optimum delivery of the microwave energy. You do not use brass to deliver electricity due to its inefficiency; why would you ever consider using it to deliver high power microwave “electric” energy?
