Because process times can be many hours long, it is seldom practical to observe the drying process.
That being said, process abnormalities that last for just seconds or minutes can cause so-called pharmaceutical elegance, up to and including collapse of the product, resulting in the loss of a batch.
This is where Martin Christ turns to LyoCam 2.0: a high-quality, full HD industrial camera continuously photographs the product, at intervals varying from seconds to minutes, depending on the process stage. Event-controlled high-frequency recording or freezing is also possible with controlled nucleation. The behavior of the ice condenser (build-up) can also be documented.
