The specified Maximum Ice Condensing Capacity in 24 Hours and Maximum Deposition Rate are based on the process of freeze-drying water as aggressively as possible. The freeze dryer's ability to collect ice at an hourly rate or over a specified period will always be application dependent.  

 

** Vacuum specifications are based on SP Scientific test data from similar units equipped with an Leybold D2,5E two-stage rotary vane
vacuum pump. Units equipped with other vacuum pumps may yield different results.
 

NEMA plug type is selected at time of sale.  

\\ 35 °C heated bulk shelf rack is available with a 12-port acrylic drum manifold only.
