Dryers Accommodate Auxiliary Equipment


Vibrating fluid bed dryers and coolers feature rugged, unitary, steel bases as standard that allow cover lift hoists, process air ductwork, control panels, monitoring instrumentation, and other auxiliary equipment to be attached to the system as a single unit. Providing a dedicated, non-moving foundation, the bases ease process integration, add flexibility in installation and ensure ancillary support systems may be installed on the same footprint, rather than set separately or left unspecified.


Developed for use with vibrating fluidized bed drying and cooling systems that process foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, minerals, plastics and other products, the support bases are carefully weighted to minimize vibratory reaction forces and permit installation on mezzanines, light steel structures and on other above grade locations. The versatile bases may be fitted with secondary isolation elements to virtually eliminate vibratory reaction forces and may be mounted on casters for mobility without affecting stability. The bases are custom engineered and manufactured in structural steel as standard and are available fabricated from tubular stainless steel for sanitary installations as an option.


  • Air distribution cage uses static pressure buildup rather than baffles, permitting uniform control of air velocity over the entire dryer conveying surface
  • Wedge wire conveying surface features triangular profile wires with a thin, tapered slot, providing seven times more open area than the typical drilled deck and delivering superior heat exchange
  • Every six foot increment of dryer length features independent controls for air temperature and velocity, including a cooling zone, if desired
  • Controlled exhaust air assures uniform vertical air flows and eliminates the high, horizontal air currents near the bed that disturb the material flow
  • Automatic weirs provide unprecedented control of bed depth and/or retention time without product degradation
  • Entire dryer is accessed and cleaned by one person by releasing the clamps, engaging the cover lift hooks and raising the cover with the convenient hand winch or with automatic control
  • Sanitary stainless steel designs with continuously welded seams available to meet USDA, FDA and 3-A standards and regulations
  • Material which enters first, leaves first
