Structural analysis

One of the key aspect during design procedure of the freeze-drying unit is to ensure safe operation of the device in terms of mechanical and thermal stresses, especially during the vacuum conditions. Therefore, the structural analysis of the prototype unit was performed to define the number and position of additional fins for deformation reduction.

According to the results, the similar deformation range was achieved when compared to the reference unit despite the additional equipments of the microwave heating system.

Looking forward to see first results of the prototype unit from the lab!
