Carman Industries Reinvents The High Temperature Fluid Bed Processor

Jeffersonville, Indiana - Carman's Two-Zone, High-Temperature Fluid Bed is proven to efficiently and uniformly dry and cool sand, gravel, granular nickel matte and other non-heat sensitive products.

Its proprietary air distribution deck fluidizes even very wet materials without pluggage and its vibratory operation mixes the product being dried while conveying "rocks" that don't fluidize to the discharge end. Dust carryover is minimized by an expanded hood and dry, hot air from the cooling zone can be recycled to enhance thermal operating efficiency.

Features include:

  • Heavy-duty, modular construction with thermal expansion capability
  • Low maintenance Force-Vector inertial drive
  • Factory installed insulation
  • Isolation system
  • Easy startup and shutdown
  • Reliable, automatic operation
  • PLC drying controls
  • Standard sizes are available up to 150 square foot and 20,000,000 Btu's. The Model FBP-1322HT dryer pictured dries sand with 6% moisture at 80 TPH and gravel with 4% moisture at 70 TPH. Equipment is dynamically tested prior to one-piece shipment and modular air system guarantees alignment of long-life air-purged flexible connectors. Preassembled components simplify and reduce the cost of installation.

    Carman Industries manufactures the most complete line of vibratory material handling and process equipment in the industry including Feeders, Bin Dischargers, Conveyors, Fluid Bed Processors, Drawdown Hoppers and Spiral Elevators.
