Cuddon Freeze Dry has been developing and manufacturing freeze drying equipment since 1963. Their systems are highly respected for their quality of construction and robustness, which ensures a minimum of maintenance requirements. All Cuddon freeze dryers are manufactured under ISO 9001 accreditation, and full validation packages such as FAT & IQOQ, can be supplied.

Each system allows operators to control important processing aspects, as highlighted, below:

  • Shelf temperature – accurate for both positive and negative temperatures
  • Pressure – an upper limit can be added to that particular step/recipe, to help drive more efficient drying
  • Multiple drying steps: minimises the risk of poor product quality, post-drying
  • Product Freezing-in-situ: While many may prefer to freeze material externally, for some products the ability to freeze within the machine in a controlled manner is preferred
  • Food processing
  • Dairy industry
  • Pet food/treats – freeze drying raw & cooked meat products
  • Cultures and starters
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Wound management – Collagen scaffolds

Please note that all kg described, below, represent the total ice condensing capacity of the equipment within 24 hours i.e. FD80 = 80kg ice condensing capacity in 24 hours

FD18 – 18kg / shelf area 1.8m2
FD80 – 80kg / shelf area: 9m2
FD300 – 300kg / shelf area: 29m2
FD600 – 600kg / shelf area: 58m2
FD1000 – 1,000kg / shelf area: 92m2
FD1,500 – 1,500kg / shelf area: 137m2
