NuWave Research Inc. of Burnaby, BC, has announced it will be the vendor supplier for a rapid low temperature dehydration system (microwave-vacuum dryer) for the new B.C. Food and Beverage Innovation Centre at the University of British Columbia (UBC). This collaboration will advance research and innovation in the field of food science and technology in B.C. and globally.

The NuWave Chimera system (shown above) is primarily intended for applications in research and development, product testing and trials. The Chimera is a batch processing 25 kW microwave vacuum dehydrator (VMD) and forms part of a modular, scalable family of products. The company’s proprietary technology is said to dry faster, and more consistently than any other machines on the market using a proven core technology that is fully customizable.

UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems expects construction of the B.C. Food and Beverage Innovation Centre, to be completed by early 2024, and it will be a hub for research studies involving food science, food engineering, biopackaging, material science, and biological engineering. The NuWave system is being procured to enable research in drying technology.
