freeze drying 2.0
The SL1X is the first machine of a completely
new series of freeze drying machines.
We rethought freeze drying from the bottom up for this new model.
Every piece of the SL1X is made to
improve productivity and easy of use.
Maximum extraction capacity
The SL1X uses a completely new type of coldtrap, The SL1X Coldtrap moves right next to the material, reducing the travel of vapour to a minimum and increading the extraction time to the absolute minimum.
Fastest deicing
No other method reaches our deicing speeds, we took deicing of a capacity of up to 250 kg from a usual 5 hrs to 20 minutes. Using a hot gas bypass and electric heating the coldtrap heats up very fast, the ice then falls of the coldtrap and after a short time the next batch can be loaded.
Fastest reloading
While the machine is deicing you can already charge the machine with the next batch of material. As an option we offer you a robot arm to unload and load the machine and its shockfroster unit.
Shockfroster included
Below the drawers unit the machine houses a shockfroster unit for all of the 120 trays which are 400 x 600 mm (european standard), while the machine is drying one batch it already freezes the next one.
Complete new design
The sliding door enables to load the machine from the side and avoids using sticks or huge chambers usually necessary to access tablets in such large machines. Another advantage is that we have completely eliminated all cables from the chamber.
Handheld HMI
The unit is equiped with a handheld HMI and can also be accessed remotely, no need to run over to the machine to see what is going on, take the HMI with you.
The icebox saving 40% of energy
The sink below the drawers unit is used to catch the ice as soon as it unsticks from the coldtrap, from here it falls to the icebox on the lower side of the machine.The ice is then used to cool the refrigerant for the next batch saving up to 40% of energy of a run, more than silicon oil based machines can save,
When the machine is working and the unit is closed, the sink can be used as a workplace to prepare the material for the next batch and place it to the shockfroster, another advantage and time saving feature,
YES it moves and its transparent !
The chamber itself is moveable to make way for the melting ice when it falls down, also it is really transparent acrylic glass, this way you can actually watch the material as well as the ice build up as it happens.
The SL1X uses only top brnded material such as a Blitzer compressor, Siemens controler, Leantech rails, edwards pumps and more, the device is manufactured in our factory in Vienna.
Wave has its headquarters in Austria. We supply and support customers throughout Europe. The SL1X is equipped with remote maintenance. Spare parts are always available.
We also have a service center in the US that serves our US customers.
The SL1X features a completely new design and approach to freeze drying. The drawers can be accessed from the side, the lower part of the machine is a shockfroster, you can quickly load from the shockfroster to the machine without losing time. Defrosting is faster and cleaner than on any other machine and the ice is reused to save energy on the next batch.
To further increasy productivity we offer an option with a cobot to load, unload and document the material with weight and image for each tablet.
It took our team 2 years of concentrated work on this new range of machines to come up with the most productive and innovative machine on the market, more than a dozens new patents and design trademarks have been registered for these models that are unique on the market.
Our goal is to offer the best price-performance ratio for freezedryers. The SL1X is available from $ 350.000, a leasing with one of our partners is also available.
The FD770 comes with an integrated shockfroster - while the machine dryes one batch it freezes already the next one in the shockfroster.

The FD400 uses a new type of rail system that allows faster deicing and better handling of the drawers unit for cleaning, servicing as well as inspection.
The lower unit houses a shockfroster that can store all
48 drawers. Once the machine is defrosted it can be quickly loaded with the frozen goods and the next batch can be produced.
A strong Blitzer compressor enables the FD770 with
up to 150 Kg of extraction capacity.
A completely new approach to freeze drying enables fastest turnarrond ever in the industry; loading from the side avoids using sticks to access trays deep inside a tube; the sink drawers unit does not touch the wall and enables maximum capacity for ice.
