The FD10 Pilot scale freeze dryer, is a hygienic dual chamber bulk freeze dryer. It represents the next generation of freeze dryer solutions for the process industry. FD10 offers high capacity, optimized energy-efficiency and is virtually maintenance-free. This freeze dryer has the highest hygienic standard in the industry and its flexibility enables multiuse in various setups and applications. In addition, the onboard control system combined with SD Freeze Drying’s batch reports offer the end user easy reporting and up-scaling.
The technical solution is built on the well-known and proven dual chamber system which enables isolation of the product and condenser chambers. The heating for sublimation is supplied by stainless steel PTFE-coated electrical heating elements. The heating elements secure a uniform temperature gradient and pressure across the entire tray surface area. This solution offers the highest level of hygienic design and secures product integrity by eliminating the risk of silicone oil and/or water leakages within the chamber. The pressure, flow and heat dynamics are identical to the large scale FD500 chamber ensuring easy up-scaling. The design is made for simple and easy maintenance.
FD10 freeze dryer’s design form complies with the highest hygienic standard and includes CIP spray nozzles installed for full coverage of CIP-liquid, SIP solution and sanitation via e.g. P3-Oxonia or vaporized hydrogen peroxide. The design is made according to the strict EHEDG guidelines, all surfaces wetted by CIP-liquid are documented with either 3.1, FDA and/or FCM certificate.
The FD10 freeze dryer is designed for drying nutraceuticals and dietary supplements e.g. probiotic bacteria, colostrum, enzymes and allergen extracts.
