BFD-20 Pilot Freeze Dryer

Pilot Production Freeze Dryer

The BFD-20 pilot plant freeze dryer suits small volume trial production in non-aseptic industries, to validate laboratory research results and prepare technology transfer to later commercial production. This freeze dryer has a wide range of applications including heat sensitive drugs, enzymes, bacteria, probiotics, additives, dairy, meat, as well as food item fruit and vegetable. By select stoppering device, the freeze dryer also can adapt to vaccines production which are loaded in vials or bottles.
