Freeze drying is by far one of the gentlest product drying/preservation methods in the market, specifically designed for the biopharma and life-science industries. It is based on sublimation, which means a direct transition from a solid state to the gaseous state without becoming a liquid. The frozen products are dried under vacuum without thawing, which ensures valuable products are preserved without damage.
Pilot freeze-dryers are instruments specialized for process optimization or small batch production in flasks (vials) or product trays. With their geometric similarity, comparable temperature-control system, and identical operation, these systems are on a par with large production machines. This similarity makes scaling processes much easier! Our freeze-dryers cover product capacities from 4 kg to 16 kg per drying cycle. The temperature-controlled shelves are sized between 0.11 m² and 1.2 m². (1.18 ft² and 12.9 ft²)
