Industrial Food Freeze Dryers

Large Capacity Food Freeze Drying Plant

The Vikumer FDR freeze dryers are large food freeze drying plants that fit industrial large volume production. Designed to process fruits, soup, vegetables, seafood and prepared meals. Rapid drying cycle and economic running cost.

While a large volume of products in plenty of trays need to be handled. To minimize the employees and labor time, the FDR adopt auto loading unloading system. Raw products are placed on trays on trolleys, which are hanging on overhead monorail, by slide the trolleys, operator can quick transfer products to areas they want. For example IQF room, freeze dryer, harvest area and trays clean room.
