Vibro-Bed Fluid Bed Processor
The Kason VIBRO-BED fluid bed processors dry, moisturize, heat, or cool bulk solid material by causing it to vibrate on a screen or perforated surface within a rising column of heated, chilled, or moisturized air. Continuous air flow and vibration separate and fluidize individual particles, maximizing the surface area of material and, accordingly, the rate at which drying, moisturizing, heating or cooling can occur. The vibratory motion of the processor also serves to convey the material along a defined pathway for uniform processing on a "first in/first out" basis, and to evacuate the fluid bed at the end of each cycle.
Kason circular fluid bed processors maintain an unprecedented level of operating efficiency across a wide range of model sizes—from 450 to 2125 mm (18 to 48 inches) in diameter—for laboratory and pilot plant testing as well as batch or high-volume inline drying, cooling, or moisturizing of bulk foods, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals.
