Fluid Bed Dryer Lab Scale GMP Model
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 in to the unit. The fresh air is heated by means of electrical heaters or steam or thermo fluid heaters. This hot air stream expands the bed of material at certain velocity & reading turbulence in the product. The phenomenon is known as fluidization and offer conditions which are almost ideal for drying. Fluidization produces full agitation of solid particles and since each particle gets surrounded by hot air, heat transfer is extremely high and uniform. The product is dried fast without appreciable loss of heat. Filter bags prevent particles escaping from the dryer.
