Technology for Freeze Drying and Recovering Wet Books and Documents

There are many aspects to controlled freeze drying and managing these can only be done by a professionally-trained eye. As each batch of similar materials is processed and water is removed, periodic inspections are performed to stay on top of the progress of water removal and reconstitution. Electrical and mechanical adjustments are made as needed to insure quality control. The net result is a smooth, uniform, and predictable set of outcomes.
