Fluid bed dryer systems
How do fluid bed dryer systems work?
A continuous fluid-bed system is a machine in which a continuous flow of “wet” powder, granular or flakes material is conveyed over a perforated bed. Conveying of the product is done by means of a low-frequency, high amplitude shaker mechanism. The “Shaking” motion plug flow of the Tema fluid bed dryer, allows first-in, first-out drying of products and well-mixed fluidization, which covers the entire spectrum and is able to accurately control the spread of residence time.
The fluid bed dryer system blows hot drying air through the holes of a perforated plate. The wet particles are lifted from the bottom and cause the particles to behave as a fluid. The air velocity is adjusted to keep the moving layer of material fluidized.
