Methods for effective fluidization of particulate food materials

Senadeera, Wijitha and Bhandari, Bhesh R. and Young, Gordon and Wijesinghe, Bandu (2000) Methods for effective fluidization of particulate food materials. Drying Technology, 18 (7). pp. 1537-1557. ISSN 0737-3937


Depending on the size and shape of the materials, methods employed to achieve effective fluidization during fluid bed drying varies from use of simple hole distributors for small, light weight materials to special techniques for larger and/or moist materials. This paper reviews common air distributors used in fluidized bed drying of food particulates. Also it reviews special methods of fluidizing larger irregular food particulates.
