A pilot plant scale freeze dryer was designed and manufactured and its performance was tested. Freezing capacity of water vapor in the developed freeze dryer was 8㎏/batch and heating and defrosting methods were conduction and hot gas types, respectively. And exhausting time of vacuum pump was 7-8 minutes and temperature of cold trap was kept below $-50^{\circ}C$. In the freeze drying of fruits and vegetables, its optimum and maximum drying capacities were 2 and 4㎏/batch, respectively. Performance of the new freeze dryer was compared quite well with a foreign made freeze dryer.
