LyoDry Maxi Freeze Dryer
Pharmaceutical freeze dryer with pressure control and stoppering

LyoDry Maxi Freeze Dryers have controllable shelf temperatures, optional stoppering and pressure control

LyoDry Maxi Freeze Dryers are designed  for pharmaceutical laboratory applications and are fully automated with touch screen control and controllable shelf temperatures, ideal for pilot scale or lower volume production freeze drying. 
Freezing, primary and secondary drying, end point determination, backfill and stoppering sequences are all controlled by a central processor unit, allowing complex pressure/temperature profiles to be controlled accurately and reproducibly without operator intervention.

Suitable for freeze drying material in bulk, or in vials, with an option for stoppering, LyoDry Maxi is designed to fit easily through a standard lab doorway, and requires only mains electric supply.

Clients include blue chip pharmaceutical , food and beverage, university, government research centres and archaeological conservators.


LyoDry Maxi freeze dryer is available with either 3, 4 or 5 product shelves.

Each individual shelf measures: 360mm W x 480mm D with an area of 0.172 m².


The shelves provide low controllable shelf temperatures, with an accuracy of better than ± 0.5°C. of either:

  • -40°C to + 60°C (Part No: LSM40) or

  • -60°C to + 60°C (Part No: LSM60)




Process variables and product temperatures, systems status and fault indicators can be viewed in real time via the user-friendly, touch screen operator interface, or logged continuously to memory. LyoDry Maxi is factory fitted with an integral graphic chart recorder and  a comprehensive alarm management system.
