SP Hull LyoConstellation Freeze Dryer

LyoConstellation Development & Pilot Freeze Dryers provide the largest process space in their class, allowing development of highly aggressive cycles. Each unit can hold 100mTorr while shelves are at +40⁰C fully loaded. Equipped and controlled as a production system, LyoConstellation offers the same software and technology options as smaller systems for a seamless approach to scale-up while being designed for line integration – including being isolator-ready and suitable for clean room installation.

Available in three shelf sizes: 1m, 2m and 3m, LyoConstellation lyophilizers are configured to order for faster than average market delivery.

LyoConstellation offers a comprehensive range of options for secure, best manufacturing practices for high-value products, including controlled ice nucleation, fluid condenser cooling and large diameter vapor ports for high flow.

Showcasing SP’s Line of Sight technologies, the LyoConstellation is available with ControLyo Technology, Tempris wireless temperature sensors and (SMART) LyoFlux TDLAS mass flow measurement.
