Harvest Right Pharmaceutical Freeze Dryer
Preserve Herbs, Aromatics, and Other Organics with a Harvest Right Pharmaceutical Freeze Dryer
Harvest Right's pharmaceutical free dryer solves many of the problems associated with processing and preserving plants, herbs and organic compounds. Harvest Right's Pharmaceutical Freeze Dryer is ideal for freeze drying herbs, oils, concentrates, rosin, extracts, medicines, remedies, dairy starter cultures, flowers, taxidermy, and other organics. It uses patented, cutting edge technology to keep your product at its freshest, preserving everything from potency and color to shape and nutrition of any organic material.
Three things cause organic material to degrade and lose freshness i.e. water, heat and oxygen.
Harvest right has a solution to these problems. Harvest Right’s Pharmaceutical Freeze Dryer removes water from plants and organic compounds while they are in a frozen state. This locks in the freshness of herbs and plants. Their appearance, nutritional content, and potency remain the same as when they were fresh.
Freeze drying completely removes water in about 24 hours. No other preservation method comes close to removing water this quickly. This is important because the longer a harvested plant or compound retains water, the greater the chance it has of spoiling and losing nutrition and potency.
Most water extraction methods destroy enzymes and terpenes because of the heat used in the extraction process. Because the freeze drying process does not use heat to remove water, the enzymes and terpenes in freeze dried products are not destroyed. Delicate or heat-sensitive substances can be freeze dried at low temperatures without damaging their physical structure.
Oxygen absorbers can be used to protect packaged foods and organic compounds against spoilage, mold growth, color change, and loss of nutrition. By removing residual oxygen inside packaging to below 0.01%, oxygen absorbers effectively preserve packaged foods without the need for food additives/preservatives and without the need for vacuum sealing.
How it works
When material containing water is placed into an almost zero humidity environment, the water molecules are drawn out of the material and into the CO2, raising the relative humidity of the CO2 and lowering the water content of the material. If the CO2 around the material is steadily replenished then the process will continue until all moisture has been removed from the material. All this happens at low temperatures, below the freezing point of water, which means that the material is preserved in a totally "fresh" state.
How Much Energy Does Freeze-Drying Use?
Freeze drying four trays of food in a Harvest Right freeze dryer takes between 24 and 36 hours. You can freeze dry about 6-10 pounds of fresh food in each batch with Harvest Right. One of the great benefits of freeze drying is that it can save you money by allowing you to buy food in bulk and preserve your own garden harvest while reducing food waste.
These pharmaceutical freeze dryers are engineered to run as efficiently as possible. These freeze dryers use a standard 110 volt outlet, so running the freeze dryer costs about $1.00-$2.80 a day, depending on power costs in your area.
Given how little it costs to operate, you can keep it running day after day while barely impacting all of the money you save by creating your own food storage, taking advantage of supermarket sales, better using your garden produce, and reducing your overall food waste.
