Areas of Application
The fluid bed food processor is designed for to facilitate quick and easy cleanout after the product treatment is completed.
Procedyne systems operate on electricity, natural gas or fuel oil, thermal fluids, steam, or hot air or water, and are highly efficient, even at high temperature.
Precise temperature control, combined with uniform and complete fluidization, provide for reproducible, high-quality product with extremely high yield.
An array of batch and continuous food processors can be custom designed to each application.
Procedyne fluid bed technology is primarily based on dense-phase fluidization, at the lower end of the fluidization regime. The low fluidizing velocities - and accordingly low gas flows - typically employed in Procedyne fluid bed systems translate to very effective, efficient and low-cost operation.
This capability for processing of very fine and/or lightweight materials arises from the unique design features we can employ. Prominent among these are:
As Procedyne systems typically operate at very low gas flow rates, indirect heating of the process is possible. This feature allows for processing at bed temperatures up to 1200C, with capability to maintain specific atmospheric conditions. Virtually 100% of the process heat requirement is via the indirect through-wall radiant/convective heat transfer mechanism.
Integral High-Temperature Gas Filtration
Even at very low gas velocities, elutriation of fine particles from the fluidized bed can be an issue. Procedyne has a solution in its high-temperature gas filtration system, which can be integral to the fluid bed process vessel, for virtually 100% solids retention in the process environment and particulate-free exhaust.
