VirTis Freezemobile 12EL Freeze Dryer - Refurbished and Calibrated, Meets Manufacturer Specifications

Thoroughly refurbished with numerous new parts and a 90-day warranty, this VirTis Freezemobile 12EL freeze dryer is the affordable but reliable solution for equipping your lab for years of lyophilization. It’s in excellent physical condition and guaranteed to meet manufacturer specifications.

Refurbished - Brand New Parts, Tested, & Calibrated

Our freeze dryer refurbishment process is more than just returning the instrument to working condition. We install brand new parts, recharge the refrigerant, test for leaks, and calibrate the system so you will get excellent performance on day one.

- New vacuum and drain hoses
- New condenser chamber door seal
- New pipe and condenser insulation
- Clean and regrease all vacuum port valves
- Recharged refrigerant
- Leak testing performed

After refurbishment, our technician thoroughly inspected, tested, and calibrated this system to ensure that it would be running perfectly when it enters your lab.

Exceptional Internal Condition with New Insulation

Insulation: Over time, the insulation in freeze dryers will break down and fall apart due to moisture build-up and often needs replaced, so our technician has replaced all old insulation with brand new insulation. This includes:

- Pipe insulation
- Condenser insulation

Refurbished insulation means that you get an instrument with a long life ahead without worrying about heat loss issues.

Compressor: The compressor shows very little paint peeling or wear. The lines coming into the compressor get quite cold, so condensation freezing on the lines breaks down that part of the compressor, but evidence of this is minimal in this freeze dryer.

In Excellent Condition - Will Look Great in Your Lab

This freeze dryer is in excellent shape, lacking any sort of major dings or damages. With many of the parts being entirely new, including the vacuum hoses, drain hoses, and insulation, this system not only runs flawlessly, but it also looks like a new instrument.

Rebuilt Vacuum Pump with Extended Warranty

This freeze dryer has been outfitted with a rebuilt 2014 Adixen 2021i vacuum pump and oil mist eliminator that is successfully pulling the system down to 14 millitorr. This pump carries a 1-year extended warranty, providing you the confidence that you’ll be protected in case of breakdown. We have also included 1 gallon of vacuum pump oil.

Meeting Refrigeration and Vacuum Specifications

To ensure the refrigeration of this freeze dryer is operating at manufacturer specification of -82°C at 50Hz, our technician performed a full evacuation of the refrigeration system and refilled the system with new refrigerant.

The recharge process involved the following:

- Vent freeze dryer of refrigerant
- Apply 250-micron vacuum to test for leaks, remove debris, and boil off moisture in lines
- Nitrogen purge three times to clear lines for preventative maintenance
- Refill freeze dryer with new refrigerants
- Confirm freeze dryer is operating to specification

During testing and calibration this freeze dryer was consistently able to reach -82°C with no difficulty at +20°C ambient room temperature, right in line with manufacturer temperature specification at 50Hz. As for the vacuum system, the manufacturer specification for the lowest system vacuum is ≤15mT and this system achieved 14mT.

Equipped and Ready for Operation

As long as you have compatible freeze drying vessels, you will be able to immediately start freeze drying with this system. With the included 18 shut-off valves, you can use any of the 18 ports on this drum manifold.

- VirTis Freezemobile 12EL Freeze Dryer
- 18-Port Drum Manifold w/ 18 shut-off valves
- 2014 Adixen 2021i Vacuum Pump w/ oil mist eliminator
- 1 Gallon of Inland 19 Vacuum pump oil
- OEM Tools 1.4G fluid evacuator and tubing
- Attached 208V power cable

Built to Serve Your Lyophilization Needs

Not only is this system capable of processing large batches with the 18-port drum manifold, but it also comes paired with a fluid evacuator that makes changing the vacuum pump oil remarkably clean and efficient.

- Practical 12L condenser chamber
- 18-port drum manifold for large-batch processing
- 1.4 Gallon Fluid Evacuator for clean and efficient oil change
- Easy access for vacuum pump maintenance
- Front-facing drainage valve for condenser chamber, simplifying drainage
- Smooth-walled condenser chamber for speedy defrost cycle
