Freeze dryer equipment
Freeze dryer equipment is a low-temperature dehydration process that’s typically used to preserve a perishable material or make it more convenient for transport or storage. Freeze dryer equipment works by freezing the product and then reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the frozen water in the material to sublimate directly from the solid phase to the gas phase. As a result, freeze dried foodstuffs have many advantages; they’re easy to ship and store, needing no refrigeration, they have extended shelf-lives and can be consumed with a minimum of preparation, making it an ideal process for many types of convenience foods.
KEMOLO freeze dryer equipment in China is ideally suited for large volume, high value products. Our freeze dryer equipment requires only minimal staff for operation. KEMOLO freeze dryer manufacturer have been developed with over 15 years’ experience in the freeze-drying world. We supply the freeze dryer equipment from pilot scale to industrial scale with competitive price. All movement and process parameters are carefully controlled, monitored, and logged. A unique feature of all KEMOLO freeze dryer equipment is the internal vapor condenser. Compared with external condenser systems, the equipment is compact, uses less energy, minimizes product loss and, because the condenser system does not rely on large external vacuum valves, it’s significantly more reliable. Furthermore, they’re economical to operate and easy to maintain.
The primary purpose of freeze dryer equipment within the food industry is to extend the shelf-life of the food while maintaining the quality. Freeze dryer equipment is known to result in the highest quality of foods amongst all drying techniques because structural integrity is maintained along with preservation of flavors. Because freeze drying is expensive, it is used mainly with high-value products. Examples of high-value freeze-dried products are seasonal fruits and vegetables because of their limited availability, coffee; and foods used for military rations, astronauts. Freeze dryer equipment is viewed as the optimal method of choice for dehydration of food because of the preservation of quality, meaning characteristics of the food product such as aroma, rehydration, and bioactivity, are noticeably higher compared to foods dried using other techniques.
