  • Fluid Bed Dryers


With their smaller footprint and greater heat transfer efficiency, fluid bed dryers offer an optimal industrial drying system for operations with less available floor space.


Based on pneumatic drying technology, fluid bed dryers utilize forced hot air to fluidize material, resulting in a complete mixing of solids, as well as optimized air-to-material contact.


As the leader in bulk solids drying and cooling, FEECO offers efficient fluid bed dryers designed to meet your process and material goals.
