Processing of bulk solids frequently takes place in fluidized beds or agitated tanks. These technologies are usually capital expensive and have high operating and maintenance costs. Why not consider a moving-bed process vessel?
Moving-bed process vessels are hoppers, bins, or silos modified to allow processing of a bulk solid such as heating or cooling, conditioning, drying, and conducting a chemical reaction. Compared to other fluidized beds and agitated tanks, moving-bed process vessels offer several advantages. They have no moving parts, and therefore capital, operating, and maintenance costs are relatively low. In addition, they offer surge capacity, eliminating the need for a hopper, bin, or silo for surge capacity or storage.
