FreeZone Freeze Dry Systems
FreeZone Freeze Dry Systems are designed to handle the lyophilization needs of research and pilot plant laboratories. Benchtop and mobile console models are offered. Collectors that reach -50º C are available with capacities from 1 to 18 liters. Cascade systems in 2.5, 4.5, 6 and 12 liter collector capacities that reach -84º C are ideal for freeze drying samples with low eutectic temperatures including ones containing acetonitrile. Cascade systems in 4.5 liter collector capacities that reach -105° C are ideal for freeze drying samples with ultra low eutectic temperatures including ones containing dilute amounts of methanol or ethanol.
FreeZone Plus 12 Liter Cascade Console Freeze Dry System is designed for light to moderate loads of low eutectic point samples. Removes a maximum of 6 liters of water in 24 hours.* Includes brushed stainless steel and powder-coated steel exterior; stainless steel collector chamber and coil; LCD that displays system operating parameters, set-up parameters and alarm messages (choice of temperature in °C and ° F, choice of vacuum in mBar, Pa and Torr); two 3/4 hp CFC-free refrigeration systems; red alarm light; LED vacuum and temperature wave graphs; patented moisture sensor; vacuum control/break valve; rear-mounted RS-232 port; automatic start-up switch for collector cool-down and vacuum pull-down with manual override switches; hot gas defrost and switch; retractable collector drain line; 3" diameter port for connection of drying accessory; power switch; rear-mounted electrical receptacle for vacuum pump connection (pump not included); 3/4" OD vacuum connection; 3/4" ID vacuum hose; and two clamps.
* Freeze drying rate will be lower for samples other than shell-frozen plain water. For optimum performance, room temperature should be 21° C (70° F) or colder.
