Abstract

Spouted bed is suitable for drying of coarse particles which are Group D of Geldart's particle classification. Malaysian grown paddy was used as a Group D sample in a lab-scale spouted bed dryer. Drying was carried out in two different internal structures of the dryer, namely with or without the installation of a draft tube, and at several drying temperatures, air flow rates as well as bed heights. Spouted bed drying kinetics of paddy presented in drying curves showed only induction and falling rate periods, without constant drying rate period. The highest drying rate was achieved when paddy was dried without draft tube at low bed height, high drying temperature and air flow rate.
