Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryers

vibratingFluidBed2Carrier vibrating fluid bed dryers are designed to dry and/or cool a variety of products at a wide range of feed rates.

Like conventional fluid bed dryers, vibrating fluid bed dryers function by passing a process gas 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 materials.

Vibrating fluid bed dryers are well suited for:

  • Material that has a wide particle size distribution — fluid bed dryer vibration will help to discharge oversize particles that will not fluidize.
  • Sluggish or sticky materials.
  • Temperature sensitive materials — a sub-fluidized condition can be created to produce plug flow and eliminate burning or discoloration of individual particles.
  • Fragile materials — low amplitude fluid bed dryer vibration and reduced fluidizing velocity create a gentle bed, which causes less degradation than conventional fluid bed dryers or other mechanical dryers.

Features and benefits of Carrier vibrating fluid bed dryers:

  • Lower fluidizing velocities are required, making the fluid bed dryer system more energy efficient.
  • Easy to clean and maintain.
  • Re-circulated gas and closed-loop systems available for improved efficiency or solvent recovery.
  • Clean-in-place and fire suppression systems available as part of the vibrating fluid bed dryer, 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 vibrating fluid bed dryer construction.
