Vibratory Fluidised Bed Dryer is an extension of fluidised bed techniques, by using vibrations as an external aid to fluidisation. All materials cannot be fluidized because of one or more of the following reasons:
1. Excessive moisture
2. Strong surface forces
3. Wide particle size distribution
4. Fine Powder
5. Product characteristics
Some of the materials having such properties can also be fluidized well with the air of mechanical vibrations. Vibrations breakup the inter-particle forces of attraction and improve quality of fluidization. Bubbling of hot air in a stationary fluid bed may cause violent agitation. When vibrations are used as an air, gas velocities are reduced and the fluidisation is gentle. Particle attrition is reduced. Thus substances having low mechanical strength can be dried without damage.
There are two methods of imparting vibrations:
a) Constant Force System
b) Constant Displacement System.
Choice is exercised based on application.
