Reconditioning can be as simple as periodic maintenance or control system upgrades, including replacing vacuum lines to eliminate rubber hoses, upgrading vacuum sensors from thermocouple style to Pirani, and repainting the panels to restore them to like-new conditions.
Refurbished Freeze Dryer: Periodic Maintenance
Replacing the chamber and condenser gaskets, cleaning the air cooled condenser and inside the cabinet, changing the vacuum pump oil and testing the system for proper performance.
Refurbished Freeze Dryer: Control System Upgrades
Replacing the proprietary microprocessor or aging PLC with a Ethernet based PC/PLC, providing the latest in process control and data collection. 21 CFR Part 11 controls are also available. Every 5 years technology changes to the point where old control systems are obsolete and not supported. Upgrade to a full PC/PLC control system at the fraction of the cost of a new system.
