Our Industrial Bacon Cooking System is ideal for preheating, post-heating or complete cooking of food products. This continuous microwave oven system is perfect for the cooking of portion-controlled bacon, other meats, poultry, fish and other food products. The MIP 11 offers smooth, efficient and continuous cooking – all of which are essential ingredients for meeting today’s production demands. With precise computer control, you control the speed and power at which your product is prepared for maximum flexibility. Depending on the product and process variables, the MIP 11 can process up to 1,800 pounds (817 kg) of product per hour.
A Complete Microwave Cooking System
The MIP 11 provides efficient, uniform microwave cooking to provide consistent, proven results. By utilizing FMT’s microwave feed technology, products up to 3 inches thick can be uniformly heated by microwave energy. The MIP 11 meets the demanding requirements of a broad range of product applications, including bacon cooking.
The basic industrial bacon cooking system is comprised of multiple 4-foot wide by 12-foot long (1.3 meters by 3.7 meters) cooking cavities. It also features a 3-foot wide (0.9 meter) continuous conveyor system. Each cavity is powered by one or two GET2024 microwave generators. The generators provide up to 75 kilowatts of power at 915 MHz. The full system includes all controls, as well as input and output conveyors.
Dimensionally, the product opening is 3 inches (76 mm) high by 36 inches (864 mm) wide. The overall length of a basic single cavity system is 24.5 feet (7.5 meters). As always, microwave system layouts can be designed to accommodate specific customer requirements.
The oven centers around a standard 3-foot-wide (0.9 meter) positive drive, articulated belt. The belt contains microwave transparent materials, which transport the food product through the oven. For your convenience, belts in non-standard widths are also available.

Industrial Bacon Cooking System Options
We offer a variety of options for our MIP 11 Continuous Cooking Oven. To contain heat and aid with energy efficiency, we offer a complete 2-inch (50 mm) thick insulated cavity.
As a way to mitigate grease and remove product residue from the oven belt, we provide the FMT Belt Cleaner. This system employs high pressure water and supports production line sanitization and tidiness initiatives.
To further assist in cleanliness of the production line, another option we offer is the high-pressure air dry blow-off system. This feature uses air to remove excess grease and water prior to packaging. It additionally removes water from the conveyor belt after washing.
