Microwave Oven Testing : Understanding Its Importance And Methods Involved

Added: (Fri Jul 07 2017)

Pressbox (Press Release) - The radiation coming out of a microwave oven is the energy that causes water in the food to quickly vibrate, which ends up with the food being heated. Defective microwaves could disperse radiation leaks that could pose tremendous harm to the health of those who are constantly exposed to it.

An expert technician can perform microwave oven testing for both radiation leakage as well as power output efficacy. Microwave oven testing is primarily essential if you are using this particular appliance in your business, which is connected to the retail food industry.

It is vital that you make sure that your microwave is protecting you, your employees, as well as your loved ones from leaking radiation. The effectiveness of microwaves varies. In certain settings, a few microwave ovens could be unable to perform when fixed at the correct level of efficiency. Your local electrician can conduct a microwave oven testing to determine whether the microwave oven has correct energy output, which will make sure that the food is prepared within the specified duration.

The most typical reason behind microwave oven leaks is defective or deteriorated door seals. They can arise from mistreatment, food accumulation, or the microwave's age. Typical microwave oven testing could help determine if your microwave is seeping dangerous radiation.

A skilled professional electrician will examine the microwave and make sure that it is safe for use in any kitchen setting according to the AS/NZS 3760 as well as the AS/NZS 60335.2.25. It is a fast and simple procedure that involves utilizing a detector that can determine whether the microwave oven leaking radiation. It can also be used to detect the radiation level, which your microwave is generating. Local electricians make use of the OHS/WHS certified testing device for all microwave oven testing assessments.


When the microwave was considered faulty, the electrician will put on a defective sticker that would serve as a label. The electrician will then inform you of the unsuccessful microwave oven testing as well as its nasty effects on your health in case it is still used. After getting rid of the microwave, you can relax with the knowledge that you are not subjected to hazardous radiation.

Utilizing a Microwave Leakage Detector

To carry out this test appropriately, you will be using a few items, which are the reguarl microwave leakage detector as well as microwave leakage labels.

We have to remove the previous info on the leakage detector - so keep your finger upon the ‘ZERO’ button up until you pick up a beep. Fasten a spacer to make sure you are calibrating from the appropriate range. Push the ‘MAX’ button - as this would give us the very best result on the electronic display screen, which would be documented on our label afterwards. Put one cup of water in the microwave oven and push 'start.' As the microwave runs, make use of the microwave leakage detector to check for leaks by working it over the sides, seals as well as the glass window.

You will now be provided with a value on the electronic display screen. The value that you see on your screen must be lesser than 5mW/cm2 for it to pass the Australian Standard. In case this value exceeds the threshold, you would notice the leakage detector to shine its red LED light. Finally, fill out the label intended for the results of the microwave oven testing and place it along the side of the appliance. You have to stipulate who conducted the test, the radiation levels (the reading our tester gave us), the microwave's power level, as well as the test date. Based on the Standards, the regularity of this test is carried out annually.
