FreeZone 12 Liter Console Freeze Dryers with Stoppering Tray Dryers are designed for lyophilizing moderate to large loads and stoppering vials or serum bottles under vacuum. The console features a front viewing window and interior space for a vacuum pump (sold separately).

The console's upright stainless steel collector coil is capable of holding 12 liters before defrosting. A single 1 hp HCFC/CFC-free refrigeration system cools the collector to -50° C (-58° F), suitable for aqueous samples.

The Stoppering Tray Dryer features three 16.5" x 12" processing shelves. A single 1 hp HCFC/CFC-free refrigeration system and 1000-watt electric heater cool and heat the fluid medium circulating through channels in the shelves.

Lyo-Works™ OS provides a real time display of freeze dryer and tray dryer parameters on a 5" full color, capacitive touch screen. Models with PTFE-coated collectors that can withstand corrosive compounds are available.

Vacuum pump and freeze dry glassware (if not bulk freeze drying) are required (not included).

Features (All Models)
  • Upright stainless steel collector coil capable of holding 12L of ice before defrosting. Acrylic collector lid, 3/4" thick, has neoprene gasket.
  • Console cabinet with interior space for vacuum pump (sold separately) and two-piece, removable front panel with viewing window.
  • Clear acrylic chamber lid, 3/4" thick, with neoprene gasket.
  • FreeZone Stoppering Tray Dryer.

    • Start–up mode for collector cool-down and vacuum pull-down (automatic or manual).
    • Operating mode (standby or run).
    • Vacuum set point, alerts, diagnostic tests, user manual, defrost control, and optional drying accessory parameters.
    • Data logging stores and displays data in table or chart format, and may be exported via USB or Ethernet.
    • Settings include language (English, Spanish, French, German, or Italian), time, time zone, temperature (° C or ° F), and vacuum (mBar, Torr, or Pa).
    • Alerts are programmable to send via Ethernet connection to user-entered email addresses.
    • Display settings include brightness, touch sounds (on/off), and screen time out in minutes (on/off).

If a power outage less than approximately 5 minutes occurs, the freeze dryer will restart and the refrigeration and vacuum system will resume operation once power is restored. If the power failure is more than approximately 5 minutes and the collector warms above safe limits, the freeze dryer will not automatically restart.

Gail was responsible for something irreplaceable: a key link to the future of her company... and a cure. 
When she visited Kelly at Labconco, Gail's struggle led to an epiphany that would change how laboratory freeze drying is done. With the creation of Lyo-Works OS, samples can now be monitored from anywhere. And with End-Zone™ End Point Detection, now FreeZone Freeze Dryers can even send you an alert when your samples are completely lyophilized.
