sci.chem.labware often has ads from used equipment dealers. That would
be a place to monitor. A new freeze drier of any size is an expensive
proposition. Since I assume your friend is interested in freeze-drying
flowers in their 'natural' condition, rather than scrunched into a wad,
they would have to be frozen that way, then put into the vacuum
chamber. This will require quite a lot of space. The Virtis Company in
Gardiner, NY makes small, laboratory size freeze driers, and one of
their models, without shelf temperature control in the vacuum chamber,
is designed for taxidermists. This might do the job for your friend.
