Fluidized bed dryers/coolers with integrated heat exchangers (heating or cooling surfaces) are used for applications requiring particularly high solid and water evaporation performance in the salt and soda, fodder, food equipment, and plastic industries.
A tall, fluidized solid bed has shell and tube heat exchangers in it. During the process, these heat exchangers make it possible to add or remove heat continuously. With this configuration, it is possible to achieve maximum solid and water evaporation results while using relatively low airflows and temperatures and minimizing thermal and electrical energy consumption levels.
Ideal for: Bulk materials that do not have excessive infeed moisture, have a uniform particle size, and do not tend to clump
(e.g. salt and soda production, potato granules, fodder)
