Ventilex Fluid Bed Dryer for bulk processes

Do you wish to dry and cool food products, animal feed, minerals, or chemicals in an energy-efficient way?
Then a Ventilex Fluid Bed Dryer, or Fluidized Bed, is the equipment of choice!

Our engineers have developed three types of fluid beds:

  • To dry products
  • To cool products
  • A fluidized bed dryer and cooler in one; the product is first dried, using hot air, then cooled down to ambient temperatures

Optimal and uniform drying results

In the Ventilex fluidized, or fluid bed, updrafts of gas or air cause a solid substance to behave like a fluid. The mechanic shaking motion of the fluid bed enhances this effect, swiftly causing high heat transfer and uniform results.

By choosing the proper combination of airspeed and mechanical motion, products with a large variation in particle size can be treated efficiently and with a minimum of dust formation.

By gently shaking the product up-and-down, an optimal and uniform drying result can be achieved at a lower temperature and with a shorter residence time. This makes fluid beds the most energy-efficient drying solutions in their league.

It’s a Ventilex!
