The FBD 2000 is a compact, portable dryer. Its powerful air delivery system makes drying a very fast operation. The fluidisation mixes and separates the particles minimising the risk of abrasion and the creation of lumps resulting in a truly representative sample. The comprehensive set of controls makes it ideal for use in the laboratory on a wide selection of materials.
High air flow rates provide high rates of heat transfer and ensure much faster and more homogeneous drying than other methods such as oven, microwave and vacuum drying. drying times range from a few seconds to minutes. Complete drying is usually achieved in under 15 minutes.
How the FBD 2000 operates
A powerful fan delivers the high volume air flow from the base unit into a special tub assembly which holds the sample material.The flow of heated air passes through a diffuser gauze which supports the bed and evenly distributes the air as it passes into the tub.
