A new 762mm Vibro-Bed circular fluid bed drying system from Kason increases operating efficiency, cuts cleaning time and reduces cost, according to Henry Alamzad, President.
Inherent rigidity of the circular fluid bed processing chamber exceeds that of traditional rectangular fluid bed processors, allowing materials of construction to be down-gauged and vibratory motors to be downsized. Associated components are also eliminated, such as multiple air inlets and outlets, the circular unit requiring only one of each. As a result, the dryer is said to be lighter, stronger and more energy efficient at equivalent capacities.
Reductions in material, weld seams, and associated labour decrease fabrication cost, particularly when units are finished to FDA, USDA, BISSC, or 3A standards.
Cleaning time is cut in half due to stainless steel material contact surfaces, reduced weld seams, a quick-disconnect housing, and lack of internal cross members, according to the company.
