Cryogenic Lyophilization

Cryogenic Lyophilization

Airtec's advances in liquid-nitrogen-based lyophilization technology have provided customers with greater operational flexibility, improved reliability and fewer maintenance demands. The NCOOL™ heat exchanger has a refrigeration efficiency of > 95% and uses significantly less nitrogen than alternative cryogenic refrigeration systems. With high turn down capability, a compact footprint, and environmentally friendly operation, NCOOL technology is ideal for today’s demanding lyophilization requirements.

ControLyo™ Nucleation on Demand

ControLyo™ Nucleation on Demand

By inducing simultaneous nucleation of all the vials inside the freeze dryer chamber, ControLyotechnology can deliver improved product uniformity, quality and yield, while reducing cycle times by up to 40%.

Direct Oxygen Injection for Fermentation

Direct Oxygen Injection for Fermentation

Using direct oxygen injection and proprietary mixing technology, Airtec can help overcome dissolved oxygen limitations and expand the productivity of aerobic microbial fermentation by up to 65%.

Reactor Cooling

Our non-freezing direct and indirect cooling equipment provides the rapid cooling and precise temperature control required for reaction and process optimization. By harnessing the cooling power of cryogenic nitrogen, our highly efficient systems (> 95%) eliminate the need for complex, multi-stage mechanical refrigeration. Customers have experienced reduced operating costs, less maintenance requirements and increased peace of mind.

VOC Treatment & Recovery

Airtec's cryogenic VOC (Volitile Organic Compounds) Recovery systems allow customers to comply with stringent emission regulations. We’ll work with you to fully understand your process, company-specific environmental initiatives, and regulatory restrictions. In turn, we’ll help you develop a comprehensive VOC recovery plan to meet your needs and your budget.


We do more than just provide industrial gases, application expertise and products to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. We’ll help you to optimize every step of your process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of services that help you monitor and manage your gas supply so you can focus on finding the cure.
