Carman High Temperature Vibrating Fluid Bed Reliably and Efficiently Dries and Cools Wet, Granular Materials at High Capacities

Jeffersonville, Indiana, USA - Carman Industries introduces a standard line of high temperature dryers capable of drying virtually any non-heat sensitive, granular product at high capacities. Pre-engineered designs with 83 to 143 square foot processing areas are available.

Equipment design is "battle tested" including features proven in the packaged concrete industry where twenty-three similar systems reliably and efficiently dry and cool sand and gravel at high capacities. Equipment innovations include:

  • Ability to handle products with a broad range of particle sizes. Controlled vibrations eliminate deck pluggage by conveying large, non-fluidized "rocks" through the dryer.
  • Thermally efficient drying and high drying air temperature reduces equipment size and drying cost.
  • Integral cooling zone eliminates storage and packaging problems related to condensation.
  • Non-plugging air distribution deck. Special designs are available for handling very wet materials and non-fluidizable products that require mixing to improve drying efficiency.
  • Digital cascade controls monitor exhaust air temperature, an indication of product dryness, and automatically modulates drying air temperature.
  • Rugged, high-temperature construction includes use of high temperature alloy steel and a design which allows independent thermal expansion of air plenum, air distribution deck and exhaust hood.
  • Simple 2-shaft, "Force-Vector" drive includes long-life E-Series bearings. Dryer retention is adjustable using a standard VF drive.
  • Robust, factory installed thermal installation.
  • Air connector life is maximized by a ductwork/support structure system which insures nozzle alignment and includes an air purge system.
  • Startup and shutdown is quick and easy. Operation is reliable and maintenance free.
  • Dynamic testing before shipment, modular construction, steel coil isolation system and integral support legs 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.
