BFD-20 Freeze Dryers

Vikumer’s BFD-20 pilot freeze dryers suit small volume trial production. Designed to process heat sensitive drugs, enzymes and bacteria, as well as food items such as fruit, vegetables, probiotics. Offer up to 2.8m2 trays area and 30kgs condenser.

Pilot Production Freeze Dryer

The BFD-20 pilot plant is designed for small diagnostic production, preparation of technology transfer between lab and production. Customers can use it as a small lab scale production unit or a laboratory freeze dryer.

Entirely stainless steel fabricated, the Vikumer BFD-20 ensures a hygienic processing and, is easy to clean and maintain. Operation of the freeze dryer is through a touch screen HMI, and is capable of fully automatic working. Once raw product has been placed in the drying chamber, the process runs fully automatically as per pre-programmed recipes, all vital parameters such as product temperature, heating temperature, condenser temperature and vacuum degree etc. are alive display on screen, and are auto stored to enable later download and reproductivity.

BFD-20 can apply to nearly all industries including fruit, drugs, probiotics, additives, dairy and meat. By select stoppering device, also can adapt to vaccines production which load in vials or bottles.
