The freeze drying process
In cooking (R+D) and small food production freeze drying, the preparation process starts as in all culinary recipes. The product should be prepared, being sliced and distributed on the trays, with appropriate space for a correct sublimation, but optimizing the usable tray surface. In this sense, the new rectangular tray configuration increases substantially the useful surface compared with the circular trays included in the cylindric chambers. When the product is ready on the trays, it should be introduced in a low temperature freezer at the proper temperature.
After some hours at the low temperature freezer (depending on the product), it is recommended a whole night, the product is totally frozen to be introduced at the freeze dryer. From the touch screen the freeze dryer can be operated easily and safely to obtain the best result.
