A continuous fluid bed dryer may be one of two types: vibrating or static. Since there are overlapping applications for both types, it is important to understand the capabilities and shortcomings of each. A static fluid bed dryer can be efficiently designed with heat panels to achieve an almost saturated outlet air condition. A vibrating fluid bed is not quite as efficient as a static unit, but it is much more flexible, handling a wider range of particle sizes and shapes. Attendees of this presentation will compare both types of fluid beds dryers from the following aspects: design, heat efficiency, residence time, attrition, capacity, and range of applications.
- Compare the capabilities of vibrating vs static continuous fluid bed dryers
- Discover the strengths and weaknesses of each
- Understand which design suits your application best
