Fluid bed systems are integral to the food and feed industries for their versatile and hygienic processing capabilities. These systems are specifically designed to cater to the stringent hygiene standards required in these sectors. With their uniform and gentle drying methods, fluid bed systems ensure the preservation of the high quality of various food and feed ingredients. They are adept at a range of processes including drying, cooling, roasting, expanding, solvent removal, cooking, and heating.

To further optimize the drying process, especially for sensitive products, TEMA Process fluid bed dryers employ multi-temperature zoning. This feature, coupled with air recycling, significantly enhances energy efficiency while providing gentle drying at lower temperatures and extended drying times.

Fluid bed systems, with their advanced design and operation, are pivotal in achieving the desired product quality and consistency in the food and feed industries.
