In a Fluid Bed, a product or solid is made fluid by an upward moving flow of gas. The mechanical movement of the Fluid Bed strengthens this effect. Thus, the gas and product are intensively mixed so that high heat transfer and an optimum physical reaction speed are achieved.
Ventilex Continuous fluid bed dryers apply world-leading fluid bed technology to high-throughput bulk processes. By choosing a good combination of gas speed and mechanical movement, you will be able to process granular products with a wide range of grain sizes while forming a minimum amount of dust.
A whole range of products can be processed in the fluid bed for long residence times, up to two hours per machine are possible. Ventilex Fluid bed dryer can function at temperatures from–15ºC to +600ºC. The gas speed can vary from 0.2 to 3m/sec.
