Click to ViewFluid bed dryer TG 200 is used in quality control, sample preparation and R&D departments. It permits the gentle drying of organic, inorganic, chemical or pharmaceutical bulk materials without localized overheating. Suitable materials can be coarse, fine, crystalline, fibrous or leafy. The powerful fan of the fluid bed dryer ensures optimal air throughput so that the products to be dried are loosened up and thoroughly mixed resulting in short drying times. With the interval operation the fluidized bed is mixed even better. Temperature, drying time and air volume can be set digitally and adjusted continuously.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewDrying in the Fluid Bed Dryer TG 200 makes use of the fluidized bed process. Ambient air is drawn in through a filter. A blower moves the air across the heating elements, and ultimately forces it through the perforated plate and into the detachable drying container. The solid particles are blown upward and dispersed and thus kept separate from one another. This helps to avoid a caking and sticking of the particles as it often occurs when other drying methods are used.The air stream of the fluid bed dryer extracts moisture from the particles and then exits through the filter bag in the cover. Using the quick-clamp cover with the filter fleece insert is advisable when dealing with products finer than 100 μm in diameter. The 1000 watt blower provides an air volume of 185 m3/h at idle speed; heater output is 2000 watts. The air volume, heating power and temperature are infinitely adjustable. Temperature control is effected using he display gauge.
