(EN) PROCESS AND APPARATUS FOR FREEZING IN PLATES TO OBTAIN ICE MATRIXES WITH A UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF SOLUTES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE CONGÉLATION EN PLAQUES POUR OBTENIR DES MATRICES DE GLACE AYANT UNE DISTRIBUTION UNIFORME DE SOLUTÉS
Abstract
(EN)
This invention is a controlled freezing process and an apparatus that aims to attenuate the effect of cryoconcentration of solutes that occurs during the freezing of aqueous solutions, by means of a freezing method that gives the user an adequate control of the speed and of the direction of the interface between the solid and the liquid phases in order to incorporate the solutes uniformly in the ice matrix. This invention has applications in the pharmaceutical industry, the food industry and also in the industry for development and commercialization of cryogenic technology.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un procédé de congélation contrôlée et un appareil qui vise à atténuer l'effet de cryoconcentration de solutés qui se produit au cours de la congélation de solutions aqueuses, au moyen d'un procédé de congélation qui donne à l'utilisateur une commande adéquate de la vitesse et de la direction de l'interface entre les phases solide et liquide dans le but d'incorporer les solutés de manière uniforme dans la matrice de glace. Cette invention a des applications dans l'industrie pharmaceutique, l'industrie alimentaire et également dans l'industrie pour le développement et la commercialisation de technologie cryogénique.
