The TechSource Systems Rolling Rack

Loading and unloading time is dead time to your production cycle.

Consider this, if you spend 30 minutes per day loading and unloading your dryer, that is 180 hours of production time lost per year, or 7.5 days of lost production.

TechSource Systems introduces the Rolling Rack, addressing the significant dead time in production cycles during loading and unloading. Spending just 30 minutes daily on these tasks equates to 180 lost hours annually. TechSource's solution eliminates this downtime by seamlessly rolling out finished racks and loading wet racks for the next cycle. The innovative TechSource Product Racks, available in 4, 7, or 10-rack configurations, ensure efficient processing. Featuring large non-marking casters, removable shelves, radiant heating, and embedded temperature sensing, these racks optimize freeze-drying. Their washdown-ready design, open architecture, and narrow profile minimize imbalance, facilitating moisture removal and enhancing overall production efficiency.

Rolling Rack Description

Cycle Time

  • if you spend 30 minutes per day loading and unloading your dryer, that is 180 hours of production time lost per year, or 7.5 days of lost production.
  • An hour costs you 15 days. How much is that worth? $75K? $150K? More?

With TechSource Systems, you roll out the finished racks, roll in the wet racks and start the next cycle. Unload the finished racks while the next batch is already running. It only matters, though, if you can de-ice your cold plates quickly. These dryers nail that too with rapid melt-off technology.
