New! Fluid Bed Exhaust Recycling

This partial loop drying system can be added onto new installs or retrofitted on Kason or competing fluid bed drying systems to recycle a portion of the heated air used by the fluid bed. A programmable logic controller opens and closes a series of backdraft dampers to force previously heated air back in the dryer for up to 50% energy savings. Other benefits include: lower fossil fuel and particulate emissions, reduction in unwanted odors and improved air quality.

Laboratory Batch Dryer 

This drying system is ideal for pilot-plant and laboratory applications. Available in 304 stainless steel, the batch dryer can be constructed with fluid bed processors ranging from 18 inches (460mm) to 24 inches (610mm) in diameter. It features a surge bin, rotary valve, heater, blower, and controls on a caster-mounted frame. The Laboratory Batch Dryer can also be configured for continuous operation.

Medium Capacity Fluid Bed Processor 

Constructed in 304 stainless steel, this fluid bed dryer reduces the moisture content. Its circular design fulfills a range of medium volume production applications not satisfied by rectangular systems and does so with high operating efficiency at low capital cost.


High-Temperature Batch Dryer 

This compact circular vibratory fluid bed processing system dries small batches of bulk solid materials at high temperatures, up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit (315 degrees Celsius). The 18-inch fluid bed processor is ideal for small-volume production and laboratory/pilot plant testing. It features a heater, blower, cyclone separator, and controls on a caster-mounted frame.


Product Benefits

Some of the main benefits of our batch dryers, coolers, and agglomerators include:

Strong, light, and cost-effective 

High-torque motor drive for optimal vibratory motion

Quick-disconnect clamps and minimal interior seams enable easy cleaning and maintenance

Optional construction to 3-A, FDA, and BISCC standards
