Fluid Bed Dryer

Drying is a mass transfer process consisting of the removal of water or another solvent by evaporation from a solid, semi-solid or liquid. In pharma, the solvent to be removed is almost invariably water.

Our Fluid bed dryer is a process unit for preparation of granulated materials for solid dosage forms in batch and continuous batch operations. The system is applied for drying, agglomerations and top spraying upon fluidized bed. We are Fluid bed dryer manufacturers, suppliers and exporters in various capacities & batch sizes. Batch size means the weight of wet product i.e. including moisture / solvent that can be charged in the dryer at a time. In case of very granular or crystalline material the capacity may be increased by about 15 to 20%.
