Motorized Hoist System Raises Fluid Bed Dryer Cover

July 19, 2012

Witte’s vibrating fluid bed dryers and coolers feature an optional motorized hoist system that automatically raises the cover and reveals the entire drying or cooling system interior to permit safe, fast, easy access for inspection, cleaning, and maintenance. Operated at the push of a button, the motorized hoist system replaces manual, hand-operated winches with a safer, more modern approach that enables a single worker to lift and remove the cover of the largest, heaviest fluid bed dryers and coolers, which may span upwards of 36 ft in length and top 1000 lb. The increased load bearing capacity further allows the entire steel conveying section to be raised and removed while attached to the cover to permit easy access to the drying or cooling pan underneath and invite clear forklift access for deck removal.
