Abstract

A novel dynamic pressure rise method is developed as a remote sensing procedure for determining at different times during the primary drying stage of the freeze drying process (i) the temperature of the moving interface between the dried and frozen layers of the product, (ii) the temperature close to the upper surface of the dried layer of the product, (iii) the temperature of the bottom surface of the frozen layer of the product, and (iv) the temperature profile of the frozen layer of the product. Furthermore, by knowing the temperature of the heating plate and determining the value of the temperature of the moving interface from the dynamic pressure rise method, the value of the position of the moving interface could be determined by an expression presented in this work.
