Why freeze-dry?
Background: to store products, dehydration is required. Other dehydration methods are evaporative drying. The product would be shriveled and collapsed. Poor rehydration performance. The color is dull and far from the original color. Nutrients, biological activity, effective ingredients are seriously lost. The fragrance is disappeared. The storage time is short.  But freeze-dry solves all of the above problems!
Color, Shape, Flavor
Through freeze-drying, the color, shape and aroma of the freeze dried products are preserved without loss.
Nutrition, Effective Matter
Through freeze-drying, the nutrition, biological activity and effective ingredients of the product are preserved.
25-year Shelf Life
Through freeze-drying, the shelf life of freeze dried product is longer, up to 25 years, almost without deterioration. 
Freeze drying principle - sublimation: from ice to vapor In a low-pressure environment, the frozen material is heated to make its moisture directly change from solid ice to gaseous vapor, so as to achieve the purpose of drying the material. No oxidation reaction, no color lost, no shape changing, no aroma and flavor lost, no nutrient loss, no biological activity lost, no effective ingredients lost, longer shelf life.

The HL series home, pilot, lab freeze dryers are economical, small processing capacity for customers with limited budget. HL series freeze dryers are mainly used for small companies, laboratories, universities, research institute and millions of homes. 

HL series freeze dryers are mainly used for food, health products, nutrition products, biological products, pet food, herbal, coffee, milk, sea food and thousands of others. The product cooling is completed inside the machine or in user's refrigerator. And the users only need to put trays with pre-treated products into the machine, and start the automatic operation program. If a refrigerator is used, products pre-freezing and freeze-drying processes can be started at the same time, so as to save production time. 

HL series freeze dryers are composed of a main machine and external vacuum pump. In the main machine, there are freeze dryer chamber, shelf, refrigeration, heating and control system. Temperature sensor and vacuum pump sensor is equipped to measure production parameters. And 4 heavy-duty wheels are installed under the main chamber, so users can push the freeze dryer to other places.

Due to vapor condenser of HL series freeze dryers are less efficient than independent coils type of ones, moisture sublimated from frozen products cannot be condensed on the vapor condenser in time, and they would be partially suctioned into vacuum pump. Therefore, the vacuum pump oil has to be changed more often. This is an unavoidable demerit for this type of home freeze dryers, no matter which countries are they from, or which companies are they made by. The vacuum pump oil can be re-used. The usage cost would not be greatly increased due to vacuum pump oil changing. In addition, oil-free (dry) vacuum pump is recommended for a better performance.  

Home freeze dryers are small in size, and light weight. It is suitable for distribution with stocks for international markets. As the cost of the equipment is economical, the dealers do not need to spend much money to get them in stocked and meanwhile, they will have priority to be authorized to sell large scale industrial freeze-drying equipment in their countries.

The study of investment on freeze drying
(Take FD-2500 as an example, other models, consult us)

I, Summary
Freeze drying is a mature technology, and it was widely used in pharmaceutical industry for half a century. But it is still new in many countries, because of the limitation application in medical industry. As the increase of life quality, there is a huge potential market in food industry and evidence shows that freeze drying business in food grows rapidly, as freeze drying has incomparable advantage than other drying method. The investors, whom had built a small or middle plant in the first year, expand to big plant in the second year and those whom had built a big plant, have to build more production lines, the reason is the same-their business is very good, and money return fast. This article will help you to analyze the prospect and risk on investment in freeze drying plant. Take FD-2500 as an example.
II, Is it a right choice to invest on freeze drying business?
A good project is half the success. There is an old saying goes: First Come First Served. This is a good beginning that you found this business opportunity, whereas, 99% investors have never heard about it.
Here just talk about the incomparable advantage of freeze drying. The heat-sensitive material and materials with biological activity must be dried by freeze drying equipment, otherwise, they are lost. The readily oxidizable substance like apple is easily getting dark after exposed in air. As the working principle of freeze drying is sublimation in vacuum and low temperature. It remains the nutrition maximum. The shape of output is the same as input; the volume has no change sponge like. The color is most the same as original, and flavor is greatly reserved. The shelf time could be over 20 years, if it is with perfect packing without any additives, preservatives or pigment. The range of application is wide. All kinds of food materials and plants including fruits, vegetables, meals, meats, aquatic product, coffee, flowers, extractive, protein, herbals and every conceivable kinds.
III, SWOT Analysis

IV, Production and sales volume
The FD-2500 can work 30 day per month, 360 days a year. 30 minutes for maintenance in every three months. The fresh material production capacity is 2500kg per day, suppose the output from input is 20%. There will be 500kg dried products per day, and 180,000kg per year. The average whole sale unit price of freeze-dried products is about USD40/kg. But you need to pack them into small bags like 20g, 30g, 40g, or 50g per bag. Such package is not small, because the volume of freeze-dried product has no change, only lose its weight. If it is 20g per bag, it is USD1.6/bag.

Product freeze-drying time means the time of sublimation. It affected by many factors:

1, The ability of freeze-drying equipment itself.
2, The loading quantity: more loading, longer time; less loading, shorter time.
3, Water content in raw product: more water, longer time; less water, shorter time.  
4, Heating temperature: lower temperature, longer time; higher temperature, shorter time.
5, The product itself: The ability of a product cell molecule to hold water determines its rate of escape.
6, Pre-treatment before freeze-drying: no peeling, bigger size, longer time; peeled and crushed, smaller size, shorter time.
7, Other factors.
