How to read a Hull Freeze Dryer Model Number
Example: 650 F X S 1100 – SS 25C
The 650 indicates the usable shelf product area in square feet. We have made freeze dryers from 2 ft22 (.19 m22) to 1080 ft22 (100 m22). So far.
The F refers to a freeze dryer as opposed to a shelf dryer. We also make shelf dryers.
The X indicates a freeze dryer with an external ice condenser. We make both internal and external ice condensing systems.
The S refers to a freeze dryer with shelf stoppering capability. We also make freeze dryers with fixed shelves. Our standard stoppering pressure is adjustable to 10 lbf/in22 (7031 kg/m22); our highest has been 40 lbf/in22 (28123 kg/m22). So far.
The 1100 indicates the lyophilizer’s ice condensing capacity as liters of water. We have made condensing systems with capacities from 5 liters to 1200 liters. So far.
The SS indicates stainless steel construction of all product contact and cleanroom surfaces.
The 25C indicates an ASME Code Certified pressure rating of 25 lbf/in2 gauge. Hull designs and fabricates its vessels in-house and is certified to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Section VIII Division 1 requirements for Unfired Pressure Vessels. Our standard vessels are rated for steam at 20 psig (1.1.38 bar), 25 psig (1.72 bar), or 30 psig (2.07 bar) dependent upon the customer’s requirements.
