Vibrating Fluid Bed Coolers

vibratingFluidBedCoolerCarrier vibrating fluid bed coolers are designed to cool a variety of products at a wide variation of feed rates.

Vibrating fluid bed coolers function by passing process air directly through a bed of solids via a perforated plate or another type of fluidizing media. Vibration is added to aid in fluidization of more difficult to fluidize materials.

Vibrating fluid bed coolers are well suited for:

  • Material that has a wide particle size distribution — vibration will help to discharge oversize particles that will not fluidize.
  • Sluggish or sticky materials.
  • Fragile materials — low amplitude fluid bed cooler vibration and reduced fluidizing velocity create a gentle bed, which causes less degradation than conventional fluid bed coolers or other mechanical coolers.

Features and benefits of Carrier vibrating fluid bed coolers:

  • Material is continuously mixed while cooling — homogeneous with no hot spots!
  • Lower fluidizing velocities are required, making the fluid bed cooler system more thermally efficient.
  • Easy to clean and maintain.
  • Re-circulated gas and closed-loop fluid bed cooler systems available for inert atmosphere or solvent recovery.
  • Clean-in-place and fire suppression fluid bed cooler systems available where necessary.
  • Carrier’s patented Delta-Phase® Drive option permits on-line adjustment of angle of vibration and precise retention time control.
  • Sanitary, U.S.D.A. (3A) approved construction.
