The higher the sugar content, the lower the eutectic point temperature of materials [25].
In general, freezing temperature is 5[degrees] C-10[degrees] C below eutectic point temperature at least [27, 28].
The cascade design offers a CFC/HCFC-free refrigeration system that cools the collector coils to -84 C (-119 F), which is suitable for freeze drying samples with low eutectic points. Available accessories include drying chambers, product shelves, manifolds, glassware, adapters and vacuum pumps.
The collector cools to -84 C for processing samples with low eutectic points. The LCD shows alarm messages as well as system set-up and operating parameters with the option of displaying vacuum in mBar, Pa or Torr, and temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Two 1/2 CFC-free and HCFC-free refrigeration systems are used in series to cool the collector to -85 C, which is suitable for samples with low eutectic points. They work in concert with a 1000-W heater to cool and heat fluid medium circulating through channels in the shelf.
