Microwave Leakage Testing
250 Rio provides microwave leakage testing to complement our Portable Appliance Testing. Microwave leakage testing can be carried out at the same time as PAT testing or separately.
Microwave testing ensures that the levels of radiation emitted from your microwave oven are within the recommended limits. The radiation limit set by the regulations is 5 milliwatts per square cm at approximately 2 inches from above the oven. After a period of time, the door seals on your microwave can become faulty, causing microwave leakage levels to exceed the recommended limit. We also check the power output and the safety interlock switches to ensure that the microwave oven is safe to be used.
