Designed for formulation, research and development applications, the new version of pilot-scale freeze dryer incorporates improvements in control system architecture, management software, process control and interface features. Telstar has launched a new version of the Pilot-scale Freeze Dryer, Lyobeta, specifically designed for small scale formulation, research and development work.
The Telstar Lyobeta range of laboratory freeze-dryers is specially designed for the field of experimentation, research and formulation to develop recipes in pharmaceutical freeze-drying processes. The new version of the Lyobeta, which offers the flexibility, performance and small foot print required in a laboratory unit, incorporates developments related to process control, including a PLC-based control system and improvements to control and programming capabilities, management software and interface features, to make it the most complete, efficient and convenient pilot unit on the market. Lyobeta bridges the gap in the market that in the past was filled with large size laboratory equipment.
In addition to the features of the previous Lyobeta, the new series is offering the following improvements: more user-friendly interface: wider 6,5” colour touch screen LCD; improved PLC control and programming capabilities; more extensive range of interfaces to external devices (USB, PC,…) for monitoring and archiving purposes ; improved SCADA-based management software; new options, such as control of the process by means of weight variation of the product, additional temperature sensors and simplified installation procedure. The Lyobeta is produced in batches as a series product but designed with numerous options to configure the product to customer requirements.
