Laboratory Research and Pilot Scale Freeze Dryer

Laboratory Research and Pilot Production Freeze Dryer

Vikumer’s BFD-10 pilot scale freeze dryer is the one that designed specially to help technology transfer from laboratory to commercial production. Assist researchers find out the right freeze drying recipe and optimize it, as well as documentation practice.

The BFD-10 freeze dryer is a compact unit with casters and brake. All components that involved with the operate of it has inbuilt a powder coated cabinet, Such as drying chamber, ice condenser, vacuum pump, compressor and controller. The equipment is supplied fully assembled, ready to operate deliver.

Operation of the freeze dry system is through a touch screen HMI (LYO-PILOT software), capable of automatic and semi-automatic freeze dry. The HMI has the same functions as industrial units, which include: Key components running status, recipes management, real-time curve, data collect system, users and authorization.
