100-XP Fluid Bed

A Lab/Bench Scale Explosion Proof Fluid Bed Coater, Granulator, Dryer, Reactor

100XP Fluid Bed

The 100 XP unit is a multipurpose fluid bed for small scale coating, granulating, and drying applications. It is ideal for process development and for collecting scale-up data for commercial processes. The optional hot oil heater can provide a maximum operating temperature of 200°C.

With the 100 XP Explosion Proof Fluid Bed, Applied Chemical Technology (ACT) continues to provide new and improved fluid bed technology to industry. The 100XP withstands maximum developed pressures up to 12 bar. The gas stream can be vented or recirculated and a solvent recovery system is included. Sanitary fittings on the ductwork components allow easy disassembly of the unit for cleaning.
