"Turbulent Fluid Bed Dryer" is a novel design concept based on reliable "Turbulent Mixer System in conjunction with fluidized beds". In this design the "bed" contents are continuously agitated with an agitator in addition to the fluidization with air, this avoids lump formation & need for intermittent raking.
The innovative "Agitated Fluidization" concept adopted in this design provides "Greater operational flexibility" for tacking process variations, with energy efficient operation.
Dryer designed & fabricated for drying "Sugar / Table Salt" like crystalline solids on this concept are already successfully functioning The dryers are most ideally suited for heat sensitive & highly hygroscopic products, avoiding disintegration of the particles. Our dryers are custom made as per the requirements of the client.
The technology offers following advantages over the conventional "FBD" with Flat Bed
• Uniform mixing eliminates bed caking or lump formation & channeling.
• Can take process variations of feed quantity & moisture content.
• Can be cold started without replacing the bed material.
• Uses perforated screens for "air inlet" enabling uniform heat distribution.
• The replaceable fluidizing screens and agitator provides "flexibility" to capacity.
• Enhances efficiency with optimum use of heating & cooling energies.
• Eliminates the manual operations associated with other dryers & saves on manpower.
