Microwave Emissions Tests

We offer a microwave oven leakage and safety testing service to compliment our portable appliance testing work, which can be carried out at the same time as your PAT testing. We are able to test both consumer and industrial microwaves.

Microwave ovens provide a convenient and safe way of cooking food in the workplace, however faults can occur and unless periodically tested they may become a health and safety hazard without you being aware.

Lack of cleanliness and poor maintenance of the door seals can lead to leakage levels in excess of the recommended limit. Testing of the unit involves measurement of the radiation levels around the oven using microwave detection equipment to ensure compliance with legal limits. The safety interlock switches and the door seals are inspected for any signs of damage to ensure that they function correctly and safety.

This testing is done to comply with the following standards:
BS EN 60335-2-90 2006 Safety of Household Electrical Appliances
BS EN 60335-2-25 2002 Requirements for Microwave Ovens
