Purpose of a fluid bed unit is to suspend powders or granulates by a supporting air stream, which at the same time is drying the product. The continuous fluidised bed technology offers ideal possibilities for a targeted modification or customised optimisation of the product properties of bulk goods. The engineering of our continuous fluidised bed systems combines proven expertise in process technology with practical process control and maximum flexibility in construction and functionality of the plants.
SECTORS OF USE:
Demanding sectors such as the food, the fine chemical, the chemical and the biotechnological industries appreciate the continuous fluidised bed technology for its efficient operation. Even in the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry, the continuous process is becoming increasingly important as it is meanwhile exactly reproducible and can be automated.
The inlet air is sucked from the outside across prefilter. The prefilter cleans the fresh inlet air and the heating preconditions the air to the desired temperature. The forced convection in the fluidised bed leads to an optimum heat and mass transfer, which enables highly efficient drying processes. The heated air flows through the lower section of the machine across the mesh sieve of the product container and raises the product into a fluid bed. The process air flows to the fan unit whose suction causes a low pressure throughout the unit. The air is exhausted through a duct to the outside. The continuous fluidised bed technology offers ideal possibilities for a targeted modification or customised optimisation of the product properties of bulk goods.
