Comparing Continuous Fluid Bed Dryers: Vibrating vs Static

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. This presentation compares vibrating and static fluid beds dryers in terms of design, heat efficiency, residence time, attrition, and capacity.

Overview

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.

Key Take-Aways

  • 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
