How does a fluid bed dryer work?
In short: 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. Hot drying air is blown through the holes of a perforated plate. The wet solids are lifted from the bottom and causes the solids to behave as a fluid. The air velocity is adjusted to keep the moving layer of material fluidized.
Conveying of the product is achieved by means of a low-frequency, high amplitude shaker mechanism. The “Shaking” motion plug flow of the Tema fluid bed, 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.
But that might be a lot to take in. Therefore we have made a video series:
