Form agglomerates on a controlled basis with this system

By Chemical Engineering |

The Vibro-Bed fluidized-bed agglomerator (photo) employs a spraying system that introduces moisture to powdered material as it is fluidized and dried, forming agglomerates on a controlled basis. Equipped with imbalanced-weight gyratory motors and mounted on a spring suspension, the fluidized-bed chamber vibrates as a column of heated air flows upward through a fine-mesh screen, causing particles to separate and become airborne as they are sprayed with liquid. The vibratory motion of the processor also serves to convey the material along a defined pathway. Units are offered in diameters from 18 to 84 in. (460 to 2,135 mm), encompassing batch and continuous applications from low-capacity laboratory and pilot-plant testing to medium-high volume production. — Kason Corp., Millburn, N.J.
