Fluid Bed Dryers
Centri-Force now offers state of the art Fluid Bed Dryers with full technical support.
The Company has been successfully selling dewatering equipment for many years and as a result our technical team have become experts in separation. Customers are now requesting a further drying step in their processes and it was only logical to be able to offer this too. Through our collaboration with an established partner in Turkey we are now capable of a full range of dryers from a dedicated technical support team complete with after care from our offices and workshops in the UK.
Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryers
Fluid Bed Dryers, sometimes called Fluidized Bed Dryers, come in two main types, static and vibrating. The underlying principles are largely the same and the choice is usually driven by the volumes of product that will be dried. Vibrating versions are fine for small to medium volumes and static fluid bed dryer are more suitable for larger plants.
Our core expertise is around the Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryer. The material to be dried is conveyed into the Dryer where hot air is injected through hundreds of holes in a stationary base plate which lifts the solid particles into the air and creates the appearance of a turbulent liquid. The direct contact of each individual particle with the hot air results in very effective heat transfer which makes the drying really efficient and cost effective.
The vibration in the steel structure of dryer works to propel the particles forward along the dryer. While there are no moving parts, it resembles a conveyor belt, moving the product continually along the drying zone. As can be seen in the image above the dryer itself can be very long and there may well be varying temperatures depending on the product and the dryness objectives of the plant.
