  • Maintain flow through out the procss
  • Minimize cleanup, elimiate clumping
  • Significantly improve the treating and packaging process
  • Add value and performance
  • Longest warranty in the industry - 3 years

Reduce Moisture, Enhance Treatment

The Oliver Fluidized Bed Dryer is designed to improve the consistency, appearance and benefits of seed treatments. Using a combination of air in motion through a vibrating, tilted table, seed flow is converted to a "fluidized" suspension, making gentle, uniform drying possible. Product flow s smoothly across the dryer in a continuous, uninterrupted stream, supported by a gentle column of ambient or enhanced air.

By precisely controlling seed flow, airspeed and temperature, the operator can uniformly dry seeds straight out of the seed treater. The Fluidized Bed Dryer seals the treatment and locks in performance.

Maximized Seed Value and Performance

Air suspension drying enhances the effectiveness of each treatment investment and opens the door to new ones. Gentle agitation prevents erosion of surface treatments and leaves a clean, polished rich colour appearance throughout the process seed batch.

Automated Convenience and Repeatability

Optional automated operation provides instant, centralized operator setup, recall and control via touchscreen and joysticks overall parameters: product flow rate (and table dwell time), Air volume, air temperature and product humidity.

  • Centralized touchscreen.
  • Memorized setup for instantaneous startup and minimal product loss.
  • Multiple preset, preloaded routines.
  • Adjustments can be retained in the memory, such as seed type, size, chemical formulation, capacity and cleanout at the end of the seed lot.
  • Allen-Bradley electronics for integration with plant automation.

Legendary Oliver Reliability

For over 80 years, Oliver has maintained a constant improvement policy on the equipment we planted. We have 15 years of experience in Fluidized Bed Dryers alone, and this is the first fully automated unit available anywhere. Many of the machines a=we manufactured in the 1930s are still in use today. Allen-Bradley electronics are supported worldwide by Rockwell Tech Support.

For our sole manufacturing plant and headquaters in Colorado, oliver has built a worldwide reputation for outstanding hardware and dedicated, responsive service.
