Application

A Fluid Bed Dryer is a widely used industrial equipment designed to dry granular or powdered materials in a fluidized bed. It is commonly used in various industries, including pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food processing, and minerals, for efficient and uniform drying of materials.

A Batch of product loaded into the material bowl is seated in the chamber & heated filtered air is drawn through the product. By this, the entire surface of individual particle is surrounded by the hot air thus achieving a homogeneous distribution of temperature and as a result of this, a rapid and careful drying down to the smallest- residual moisture. Escape of material from the granulation chamber is prevented by exhaust filters, which are periodically agitated or purged to reintroduce the collected material into the fluidized bed. The product can be cooled and the material container exchanged for the next batch. The quantity of air is regulated by means of outlet air damper only.
