Lödige has rounded off its prod-uct portfolio for continuous granulation with the LCF 5 dryer. It is based on the fluidised bed process. The drying air is heated prior to entering into the fluidised bed processor and evenly distributed through the special sieve tray of the product container. With a special design Lödige has achieved a defined, narrow retention time in the dryer of the Granucon line compared to conventional devices. For this purpose forced delivery by means of a screw was integrated into the LCF 5, enabling retention times to be reduced in continuous production. The fluidised bed dryer is designed for throughputs of 5 to 30 kg/h and product moisture levels of up to 20 %.
The LCF 5 also offers efficiency in terms of maintenance and cleaning: the screw is easily removed and the floor can be replaced. In addition, the dryer features the integrated wash-in-place cleaning function. The filter elements are cleaned individually.
