Fluid Bed Dryer offers significant advantages over conventional drying techniques

Sherwood Scientific’s lab-scale Model 501 Fluid Bed Dryer offers significant advantages over conventional drying techniques and is particularly suited to preparation of small trial samples.

The high rate of heat and mass transfer achieved with a fluid bed dryer ensures much faster and more homogeneous drying than obtained using other methods; such as oven and vacuum drying. Complete drying is usually achieved in less than 15 minutes, with the exact time for a given sample being very repeatable. Inlet air flow rate and temperature settings are closely monitored and adjusted in this modern microprocessor controlled dryer. The Model 501’s fluidising action ensures thorough mixing…
