What is Freeze Drying?

Freeze-drying removes water content from a wide range of organic substances without biological damage or other adverse effects.

This is achieved by the phenomenon of “sublimation,” whereby water frozen within the substance being freeze-dried is vaporized directly from ice without melting and passing through the liquid phase. This can only be achieved in the very low pressure environment created by the freeze-drying machine. The entire drying process can be achieved at less than ambient temperature.

Products that undergo this process retain original shape, colour, taste and nutrition. The process allows tissues or other materials to be prepared for histochemical, histological and microscopic examination or further research. For a more thorough definition and explanation click here.

Applications

  • Food & beverage production
  • General scientific laboratory work
  • Biochemistry
  • Pharmaceutical and Vaccine research and production
  • Anatomical, biological and zoological tissue sampling
  • Vitamin, anti-toxin & clinical hormone research and production
  • Agricultural produce (meat & vegetable)
  • Historical document & artifact preservation

Categories

We have a variety of large-volume commercial freeze-drying units, benchtop freeze-dryers, and mini freeze-dryers which we offer throughout Australia. We can also modify our industrial freeze dryers according to your specifications. Consult our engineers for help in choosing the right set of laboratory and commercial freeze dryers for you.
