Fluid Bed Dryer


The ‘SHANTA ENGINEERING WORKS’ offer a Fluid Bed Dryer, manufactured in our well equipped factory, where most popular "SHANTA" make Flaker / Drum Dryer manufactured for last many years. During the last decade, the use of ‘Fluid-Bed’ technique on industrial scale, has been considerably on the increase, specially for drying, cooling, calcination, agglomeration, combustion and in many other unit operations, due to its manifold advantages. Compared to conventional batch and other continuous drying method, Fluid - Bed technology offers several advantages such as, no product lump formation / caking, no particle overheating/ cooling, a well defined product residence time, uniform product quality, better energy economy due to lower specific heat requirements etc.,


In ‘Fluid-Bed" the material is suspended in an upward moving hot-air and the mass behaves like a boiling fluid after "Fluidization". Thus Fluidization is basically a state of dynamic balance of solids in fluid. Quantity of fine solids in a form of bed are placed on a distributor plate and hot air is passed slowly. The bed expands and then at certain stage, it starts moving vigorously, This is the state of fluidization. The fluid Bed Dryers are most suitable for drying granular, crystalline, coarse or similar material. It is also possible to dry very fine crystals or very coarse material. The air is passed from the bottom of the container which has got perforations of S.S. fine wire-mesh. Hot air passes through the product container and therefore the turbulence in the product is obtained and hence the product moves up and down in the product container. Due to this the heat transfer is very quick and the product is dried very faster without appreciable loss of heat.


The Fluid Bed Dryers are not suitable for drying liquids of pasty materials. The fluid bed Dryer will be complete with 2800 R.P.M., TEFC Motor, control panel with Timer, 2 no. temperature gauge, Filter bag, SS container with Trolley & heater or steam radiator
