Martin's Agni Vibro Fluid Bed Drier
 


THE VIBRO FLUID BED DRIER

Martins Vibro Fluid Bed Drier is a quality drying machine which works on the principle of vibrating Fluidized Bed. The wet tea is dried efficiently by a control, uniform flow of hot air from any source of heat. Fermented tea leaf is fed through a feed system to the Drying chamber where mixed conditioned hot air is introduced underneath a perforated Stainless Steel grid plate which carries the wet tea by the principal of fluidization conveyed by combination of hot air and vibration. In this process fermented tea is dried uniformly to achieve best quality tea.



CONSTRUCTION

The drier has a feeding conveyor which delivers the wet fermented leaf into the drying chamber. The chamber is actually the vibrating bed with perforated grid plate under which hot air is forced in an uniform manner from the Plenum Chamber. The hot air duct is aerodynamically designed to force air through out the bed in a control manner.

The vibration is created from an eccentric drive transmitting to the drying bed resting on series of specially designed spring blades. The vibration is smooth giving uniform flow of air through the grid plate and the wet tea moves forward in a fluidized manner and is dried in the process.

The drier has a robust steel construction and fabricated base frame and Stainless Steel plenum chamber which is well insulated to give the maximum thermal efficiency. All contact point of wet tea is on SS Sheets.


CONTROL PANEL

The sophisticated control panel with high sensitive tripping system for the protection of the equipment is supplied with the machine. IIRC fuses are used. Indicator lamps are provided for overlapping tripping. Four temperature indicators and single point controller are introduced through sensors to see the temperatures inside the drying chamber.


GRID PLATE

SS 304 grade sheet is carefully performed to make the air flow through this in a controlled manner and gives forward direction of fluidization. This determines the quality of the product from the Drier.
