FreeZone 6 Liter Console Freeze Dryers are designed for lyophilizing moderate to large sample loads or numerous small container batches. The console features a front viewing window, interior space for a vacuum pump, and accommodation for a large tray dryer such as the FreeZone Stoppering Tray Dryers (pump and tray dryer sold separately). These models offer the broadest range of built-in options including a shell freezer.

The upright stainless steel collector coil holds 6 liters of ice before defrosting. A single 3/4 hp HCFC/CFC-free refrigeration system cools the collector to -50° C (-58° F), suitable for aqueous samples.

Lyo-Works™ OS provides a real time display of collector temperature, vacuum level and optional End-Zone™ end point detection system, shown on a 5" full color, capacitive touch screen. Models with PTFE-coated collectors that can withstand corrosive compounds are available.

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

Features (All Models)
  • Upright stainless steel collector coil capable of holding 6L 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.
  • Brushed stainless steel and glacier white, powder-coated steel exterior with blue accents.
  • Full color, 5" capacitive touch screen with Lyo-Works™ OS:
    • Real time display of collector temperature, vacuum level, and optional End-Zone™ end point detection system.
    • 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).
    • Maintenance alert settings include vacuum pump oil change, refrigeration cleaning, total operating hours and line voltage offset.
    • Level-specific security lock-out prevents changes to programs and other system parameters.
  • On/standby switch.
  • Moisture sensor that prevents refrigeration or vacuum start-up when moisture is detected in the drain line.
  • Vacuum control valve that maintains vacuum level set point.
  • Vacuum break valve that bleeds air into the system when power to the freeze dryer or vacuum pump is shut 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.
  • Side-mounted USB port and rear-mounted Ethernet connection.
  • Front-mounted, quick-disconnect drain hose fitting and side-mounted lanyard with hose connector. 18", 1/4" ID silicone tubing and clamp included.

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.
