Types of Fluid Bed Dryer :
Horizontal Fluid Bed Dryer
This Type of the Fluid Bed Dryer is known as the Continuous Fluid Bed Dryer, as it operates in an uninterrupted drying mode.
Comprising a mobile bed loaded with trays holding the material to be dried, this dryer enables hot air to pass easily through the perforated bases of the trays. These trays traverse distinct chambers within a planetary setup. Each chamber features an air inlet at its base and an air outlet at the top. All outlets channel air to an exhaust pipe. Although each chamber receives an air supply, the temperature of the incoming hot air gradually increases with progression through the chambers. The initial chamber employs ambient air, followed by slightly heated air in the second, progressively warmer air in the third, and finally, the hottest air in the last chamber. Initially, the air passes through the perforations, causing the material to behave like a fluid and move upwards. In the subsequent chamber, the air vaporizes and filters, leaving the granular material as the dried end product.
Vertical Fluid Bed Dryer
This variety of Fluid Bed Dryer is referred to as the Batch Type of Fluid Bed Dryer, signifying the drying of an entire batch of product at once. The drying process involves the introduction of an airstream from a top-mounted fan, which is heated in an air heater and directed upward through the material contained within the drying chambers. The chambers feature a wire mesh support at their base, and a bag collector filter is positioned at the top to lift and separate the material, allowing only the air to pass through.
Benefits of Fluid Bed Dryer :
- The temperature in the Fluid Bed Dryer is easily controllable and consistently maintained, ensuring uniform drying.
- The horizontal fluidized bed dryer operates continuously, without limitations.
- A batch of tablets can be efficiently dried within 20-30 minutes using a fluidized bed dryer due to its effective heating.
- This type of dryer produces free-flowing products and offers simple handling, resulting in reduced labor costs.
- Lumps formation is prevented, and the material is dried uniformly from particle to particle.
- Precise temperature control is achieved in the Fluid Bed Dryer, facilitated by high mass and heat transfer between particles and gas.
FAQs: Fluid Bed Dryer
What are the main components of a fluid bed dryer?
Fluid Bed Dryer is a large-sized drying machine designed by using various components. Some of the important ones are listed below:
- Fluid Bed Chamber: It is the main chamber which consists of a perforated bed over which the workpiece is placed to remove moisture or water using hot air.
- Air Distribution System: This intelligent airflow controller helps to adjust the flow rate of heat inside the chamber to ensure uniform drying.
- Heating System: It is the main component of the fluid bed chamber that is used to raise the temperature which in turn heat inlet air.
- Exhaust System: This system includes ductwork and an exhaust fan that help to remove moisture-laden air from the chamber which further improves the drying efficiency.
- Control Unit: It is equipped with a series of electrical and electronic components with a simple user interface that allows a single user to control the functioning of this heavy-duty industrial fluid bed dryer.
How is the drying temperature controlled in a fluid bed dryer?
Industrial Fluid Bed Dryer is equipped with high-performance heating elements or coils that run on standard three-phase alternating voltage to raise the temperature. The drying temperature of the dryer can be easily adjusted with the help of a PID controller that allows you to set temperature ranges to ensure safe drying of various types of products without any risk of damage. Heat level within the chamber also depends on the rate of inlet air.
What types of materials can be dried using a fluid bed dryer?
Fluid Bed Dryer is highly demanded among our customers due to its high versatility and its capability to process various types of products. Given below is the list of products that can be dried in the FB dryer:
- Agglomerates: Various agglomerated materials such as instant coffee, premix flavors, powdered milk, and protein powders can be easily dried or de-agglomerated for further processing.
- Powders: Fluid Bed dryers can be used to remove moisture from various types of powdered substances which include pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food powders, and agricultural products.
- Granules: Plastic pellets, agricultural fertilizers, granular minerals, detergent granules, and other products can be effectively dried out with the help of a fluid bed dryer.
- Particulate Solids: Small solid substances such as catalysts, pigments, activated carbon, and ceramic materials can be easily transformed into completely dried moisture-free forms with the help of a fluidized bed heating chamber.
How do I choose the right fluid bed dryer for my specific needs?
