• Fluid Bed Dryer R&D Lab Model


Fluid Bed Dryer R&D lab model is uses for fluidized bed drying which is a pretty common process in the pharmaceutical industry. This process is needed in order to achieve optimum moisture apart from applying coatings or binders before proceeding for other processes for tablet formulation.

Our 5 liters fluid bed dryer is an efficient and economical solution for small batch sizes, but due to its scalable capabilities it can be scaled up for growing needs in future. Specifically designed for lab work and small batch processing, our lab scale fluidized bed drying system is equipped with features that allow maximum flexibility for batch. It also has height adjustability features and an ultra-modern touch screen that offers easy to read schematics for better control and diagnostics. The operator can seamless monitor the smallest of bit of every operation and since it has a robust dust collection system with cartridge filter system that’s easy to maneuver, you can expect phenomenal productivity.

Our 5 liters fluid bed dryer is loaded with satin type filter bag with fingers. Its sampling system (optional) allows you to keep an eye on all results during every cycle.

Fluid Bed Dryer Working Principle

Product to be loaded onto product bowl and then to be fitted onto bottom chamber of the machine. Once machine started then heated and filtered air entered to the chamber which spread powder/granules into inner atmosphere of the equipment. Due to heated air spray onto powder moisture evaporates. There are filter bags from which air go out through damper. These filter bag prevent powder to go out into damper. In case of filter bag jammed due to excess power stuck into it, there is pneumatically operated shaking system provided to clear powder into bags. After process it over bowl can be taken out and discharges into another container for further process.
