The Fluid Bed Dryer manufactured by us is ideal for the rapid, even drying of chemical, pharmaceutical and food product. FBDs are the state of the art drying units comparable to any internationally made FBDs, with all the features available. Our FBDs are built with a working pressure of 3.0 Bar at 800c.
The in-house innovation team has been able to enhance the drying capabilities of our FBDs by 18 – 20% thus resulting in lesser drying time, giving a better shelf life to the product. The air handling unit has been designed keeping in mind, tool less construction for ease in cleaning / replacing the filter assembly. The finger bag assembly is with quick release clamps for easy removal and fixing of the finger bag. The machine has been designed ergonomically resulting in ease of operation.
Fluid Bed Dryer is designed to introduce the hot air stream at the / base of the product container which is filled with the material. Induced draught is created by means of blower and fresh air is sucked into the unit. This hot air stream expands the material at certain velocity and creating turbulence in the product. The phenomenon is known as fluidisation and offer conditions which are almost for drying. Fluidisation produces full agitation of solid particles by hot air, heat transfer is extremely high and uniform. The product is dried fast without appreciable loss of heat. Filter bags prevent particle escaping from the dryer.
1) PROCESS UNIT :
2) BOWL/ PRO DUCT CONTAINER :
3) RUBBER GASKET :
A solid ‘D’ shaped food type silicon rubber gasket is provided in the groove of the flanged joint (between the product container and the retarding chamber) to prevent any leakage of air with fines during operation.
4) UNIFORM LIFTING OF CONTAINER :
Product container is lifted by specially designed arrangement with the help of one centrically fitted pneumatic cylinder which ensures uniform lifting throughout the periphery of the container which ultimately gives uniform upward pressure to the solid ‘D’ shaped Rubber Gasket, thereby preventing any leakage during operation.
5) AUTO SHAKING DEVICE :
Pneumatic cylinder is used for auto shaking device of the finger bags is mounted on the body and is fitted with a wire rope made out of S.S. 304 guided by pulleys thus rendering the shaking extremely efficient. It also brings down the finger bags to such a level that these can be inspected very easily form the bottom of the retarding chamber. If the shaking is not efficient, the particles will be retained in the finger bags and there will be no proper fluidisation resulting in formation of lumps in the products container.
6) AIR HANDLING UNIT :
Blower and filter with heating arrangement are housed in the rear chamber. They can also be housed the services zone to avoid sound pollution as well as to avoid interference of the maintenance people in the production zone.
Air filter :
7) EXPLOSION VENT :
As per international practices the equipment is provided with a rapture disc as measures of explosion Vent, Tested at 2 Bar pressure, mounted on the side of the dryer.
8) EARTHING DEVICE :
A std designed earthing device spring type is provided with the dryer however intrinsically safe earthing device with low voltage relay is also available.
9) ELECTRO PNEUMATIC CONTROL PANEL :
A free standing steel control panel having the following controls.
In Fluid Bed Dryer, temperature distribution throughout the product is uniform and the heat transfer rate is very high. Due to the reduced drying time high production rates are achieved.
As the product is in close contact with the drying air at low temperature, and also for short duration, the physical and chemical properties of the products are generally not effected and therefore the dryer can effectively be used for heat sensitive products. Due to the continuous movements of product during drying, lump formation, case hardening etc. are minimised.
The Fluid Bed Dryer are most suitable for drying, granular, crystalline, coarse or similar material in pharmaceutical, fine chemical, fine chemicals, dyes, food, allied products. The Fluid Bed Dryer is not suitable for drying liquids or pasty materials.
