Freeze Drying Equipment Market Technological Advancements & Competitive Insights to 2020


Freeze drying is a desiccation process typically used to preserve a perishable material. It is also known as lyophilization or cryodesiccation. The method comprises of removing all the moisture content from a material by drying and freezing it. This prevents the growth of the fungi & bacteria and preserves the products for longer storage duration in a moisture free conditions. The equipment for the process includes vacuum pumps, cryogenic liquid storage, freezing & vacuum chamber, tubing & nozzles and various sensors which help in the implementation of the process. Modern technologies are being used in the cryodesiccation process, replacing the traditional ones owing to the effectiveness and efficiency.
