Freeze Dryer is widely used in medicine, pharmacy, biology research, chemical industry and food production, etc. After the freeze drying process, a long term preservation is much easier. They can be restored to the original state and maintain their chemical and biological characteristics after freeze dried.
Drying methods are various, such as drying, boiling, drying, spray drying, and vacuum drying, but ordinary drying methods are usually carried out at temperatures above 0 ° C or higher. The products obtained by drying generally have problems of shrinking size and hardening of the texture. Most of the volatile components are lost, some heat-sensitive substances are denatured and deactivated, and some substances are even oxidized. Therefore, the dried product has a large difference in properties compared with that before drying. The freeze drying technology of the laboratory freeze dryer has the following advantages over the advantages of ordinary drying technology:
The freeze dryer consists of a refrigeration system, a vacuum system, a heating system, and an electrical instrument control system. The main components are drying ovens, condensers, refrigeration units, vacuum pumps, heating/cooling devices, etc. It works by freezing the dried item below the triple point temperature and then sublimating the solid water (ice) in the item to water vapor under vacuum conditions, removing it from the item and drying the item.
