Alongside commercial PAT testing, our team also offer thorough and accurate microwave leakage testing. This type of testing is commonly supplied alongside ordinary PAT tests. Rather than simply checking the electrical components of the microwave, we will also check to see if it is emitting microwave radiation. If a microwave oven is releasing this radiation, then it cannot be classified as safe and the problem needs to be rectified as swiftly as possible.
Microwave radiation is not overtly deadly, but leakages which allow the oven to emit large amounts of radiation can still cause a number of problems. Excessive microwave radiation can pose a health hazard to employees, the general public and people living in the property. However, as long as you repair your microwave as swiftly as possible to stop it emitting excess radiation, then there should be absolutely no danger of this.
It is always better to be safe than sorry when faced with a microwave that is leaking excess microwave radiation. There can be a number of reasons for leakages, from damage to the door, to food obstructing the hinges and seals and preventing the oven door from closing properly. Whatever the reasons for any suspected leakage, our team of expert engineers utilise the latest and most advanced testing equipment to ensure that any leakages are properly detected and analysed. If the microwave leak is considered harmful, then a repair or a replacement will be required.
