The main uses of modern freeze-drying technology are: freeze-drying storage of in vitro biological tissues; freeze-drying preservation of live bacteria; lyophilization of Chinese herbal medicines, western medicines, biological drugs and blood products; freezing of convenience foods, health foods, functional foods Dry storage and transportation; lyophilization preparation of nano ceramic materials and various metal micropowder materials. Therefore, freeze-drying technology has been widely used in the fields of chemicals, food, materials, medicine, and biological products. Vacuum freeze dryer (referred to as freeze dryer) is a device for realizing freeze-drying technology. It is a complex structure machine involving refrigeration, vacuum, thermal, mechanical, fluid, electrical control and pressure vessels.
The freeze dryer is mainly a machine consisting of a refrigeration system combined with a vacuum system and a heating system including an electrical control system. Since it is freeze-dried, there will definitely be a dry box and a refrigeration unit. There are of course some other components. In fact, there are many ways to dry, such as drying, drying or vacuum drying.
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.
