Fluid Bed Drying and Cooling
Fluidized-bed drying system is constructed of stainless steel and can be supplied as a turnkey system. From Ventilex, the dryer is supported on natural air bellows adjusted to product requirements. A pressure monitor ensures the air bellows are not over- or under-pressurized. Dehumidifying is accomplished by refrigeration or desiccant removal of moisture. Independ-ent air supply units can be provided to allow for different air temperatures or humidity in different dryer sections. Air temperatures can be as high as 932oF (500oC).
