Abstract


Efficient drying of cereals, pulses and pellets in rural India has always been hindered in rainy seasons and during cloudy days. This can lead to wastage of agricultural products during storage in both farms and individual homes. We present the method of designing a Fluidized Bed Dryer for drying purposes. This simple and efficient system based on the fluidization process has been designed in SolidWorks software. The design has been thermally analyzed using Ansys. Stress analysis and flow simulation has also been carried out using Ansys. Our studies showed that the design can withstand the working conditions and hence a compact working model of the design was fabricated. Further tests and experiments can be conducted on the fabricated model for other uses including polishing and smoothening of rough particles for industry. We conclude that the design can effectively be used in for drying purpose both at domestic and industrial scale.
