Fluid Bed Dryer Airslide Inlet Tray Prevents Blockage
Witte Airslide Inlet Tray Prevents Clumping at Infeed (2).jpg

This new airslide inlet tray prevents sticky materials from clumping at the entry of vibrating fluid bed dryers and coolers. Installed within the infeed section where material enters the drying system, the airslide inlet tray directs the heated airstream through a series of small openings in the stainless steel plate that face downstream and parallel to the infeed deck. Incoming products begin drying immediately and advance gently and consistently to the primary drying zone while the potential for sticky products to block up the infeed and cause a troublesome cleanup is virtually eliminated.

An upgrade from Teflon-coated, metal infeed decks, the new airslide inlet tray is ideal for use in drying and cooling sugar, salt, flour, spices, powdered milk, paper, sludge, algae, wood pulp, manure, and other sticky products. The airslide inlet tray is offered as a custom option on new machinery and is available for retrofit on Witte units in the field. The dryer tray may be easily accessed and removed for cleaning.
