Why is Microwave Testing Important?
Microwave ovens are often found in kitchens, cafeterias, restaurants, cafes, bakeries and more. They use radiation to heat food. Radiation leakages caused due to ageing, wear and tear or poor door seals can be particularly dangerous to people who come into regular contact with the appliance.
Unstable Devices Can Cause Serious Burn Injuries
Unstable microwaves can blow up or catch fire while being operated, causing serious burns and injuries to people.
Aged or Damaged Devices May Not Perform Efficiently
An aged or damaged microwave could easily malfunction, causing food to spill or radiation to leak from inside.
Extended Exposure to Radiation is Harmful to Health
Long-term exposure to radiation can cause damage to skin and internal organs. This may lead to serious issues like cancer or neurological disorders.
Causes of Microwave Leakages
Microwave ovens have seals and gaskets that can become damaged by improper use or general wear and tear. When this occurs, microwaves will leak and cause harm to anyone within range.
Food and Dirt in the Door Seals
Food and dirt can easily get trapped in the hinges and seals of microwave doors, which may result in radiation leaking out and causing harm.
Ageing or Regular Wear
The microwave's door seals will age over time and need replacing. Old or faulty gaskets can also become damaged through regular use.
Slamming and Damaging Doors
Slamming the microwave door may cause the door seal to break, or the hinges and screws to come loose, which does not allow it to shut properly.
