Fluid bed dryers are manufactured in modular construction mainly consisting of main processing (drying) unit and separate inlet air preparation unit and separate exhaust air unit giving flexible and alternative installation option to the customers as per requirement.
Fluid bed dryers are most suitable for drying granules, crystalline, coarse or similar material in pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, dyes, foodstuff and allied industries.
Fluid bed processing involves drying, agglomeration, granulation, and coating of particulate materials. It is ideal for a wide range of both heat sensitive and non-heat sensitive products. Uniform processing conditions are achieved by passing hot air through a product layer under controlled velocity conditions to create a fluidized state.
Using intimate air-to-product contact, Drying is carried out by heated air supplied as main the source for drying, as it is effectively introduced by steam heating which gives high rates of heat exchange at high thermal efficiency while preventing overheating of individual particles.
Fluid bed coating of powders, granules, or tablets involves the spraying of a liquid on the fluidized powder under strictly controlled conditions. It is ideal equipment that is in conformity with the requirements of cGMP.
