Fluid Bed Reactors and Fluid Bed Reactor Turnkey Systems
Cost Effective and Efficient Solutions for Reactions with Solids
At Applied Chemical Technology (ACT), we design and fabricate fluid bed reactors for many industries including petroleum, chemicals, polymer, biomass, and coal. Our fluid beds and fluid bed systems may be standard or custom designed for your process. Using our in-house bench scale and pilot scale fluid bed systems, we can quickly and efficiently test the conditions for your batch or continuous process and scale-up to the equipment needed for production.
Our fluid bed reactors can also be designed as multi-function units. Through the use of zones in your fluid bed reactor, we can cool, impregnate, coat, granulate, blend, and more.
Sizes: ¼ ft2 to 1000 ft2
Capacities: 4 lbs/hr to 50 tons/hr
Heat Sources Include: Burners, Steam Coils, Hot Oil Systems
