|Fluid Bed Dryers/ Coolers/ Moisturizers
For On-Site Trials
Circular vibratory fluid bed processors are now offered on a rental
basis for drying, cooling or moisturizing trials at customer facilities,
it was announced by Henry Alamzad, President of Kason Corporation.
"Kason now maintains an inventory of fluid bed dryers, coolers
and moisturizers in smaller sizes desired by customers for process
engineering and pilot plant evaluations," says Alamzad, adding, "Short
and mid-term rentals enable customers to engineer new products
and processes, and to specify higher-capacity fluid bed equipment
that meets full scale production requirements with certainty."
The exclusive, circular configuration of Kason fluid bed processors
enables entire systems including heater/cooler/moisturizer, blower
and dust collector to be self-contained on frames with casters,
ready to plug-in and run, offering pilot plants fast set-up, compactness,
mobility and flexibility not possible with rectangular units that
are two-to three-times larger and heavier at equivalent capacities.
Inherent strength of the circular processor eliminates the need
for heavy-gauge walls and cross braces otherwise required to withstand
continuous vibration, allowing vibratory motors to be downsized.
The circular unit also requires only one air inlet and outlet and
has fewer weld seams, reducing overall size and construction cost,
especially when finished to 3A, FDA, and BISSC sanitary standards.
Cleaning time is reportedly cut by more than 50 percent due to
the reduction in interior seams, and accessibility afforded by
a quick-disconnect housing.
Kason fluid bed processors are offered in diameters from 18" to
84" (450mm to 2125mm). Rental units are available in 18" and
24" (450mm and 600mm) diameters, with larger units rented
on a custom basis.
Kason's line of fluid bed processors dry, cool, or moisturize
bulk chemicals, minerals, plastics, foods, dairy products, pharmaceuticals
and other materials on a batch or continuous basis, on a laboratory
or production scale.
