Optimal design

FBDs are designed to remove moisture content from any fluidisable bulk material. Designs of the dryers, coolers and heaters is based on the Fluidised Bed principle. Material in a fluidised state behaves as a liquid. It flows over and under weirs, maintains a level surface and exerts a hydrostatic head proportional to the bed depth.

The IHC Mining – Pyromak FBD have minimum rotating parts allowing very low installation and maintenance costs. Fluidising, combustion, and exhaust fan have no contact with the fluidised material which reduces consumables and wearable parts.
