Oliver Fluidized Bed Dryers prevent product clumping, simplify cleanup and improve finished appearance of seed coatings and treatments while cutting dry time. This is a revolutionary solution to the frustrations of clumping and bridging treated seed and edibles. The FBD uses a combination of air in motion through a vibrating, tilted table. Seed flow is converted to a “fluidized” suspension, making gentle, uniform drying possible for coated, treated or washed seeds.

Food, Seed and Grain
Allows operator to easily monitor and adjust all functions of the FBD. This includes a memorized setup for seed type, size, chemical formulation, capacity and easy cleanout.
Fans allow air to lift seed off the deck at controlled temperatures. Fan speed is controlled with ambient or heated air, or a combination of both.
A larger deck exposes a large quantity of seed to be exposed to a lot of air at the perfect temperature, resulting in the best quality seed with less biological damage.
Ethernet control can integrate the FBD into the overall plant control system so it can be operated with minimal operator input and maximize the quality throughout the entire process.
If space is an issue, Oliver Manufacturing can build a customized catwalk to accommodate any limitations of the processing floor.
