The drying rate of granular particles in the vibrofluidized bed dryer with mechanical vibrations is studied theoretically and experimentally. The combined effects of geometry, gas dynamics and thermophysical parameters were analyzed using the developed mathematical model. This model employs the phenomenological coefficient which is determined experimentally and describes the drying rate at the falling rate period of drying. The results are compared with experimental data obtained for drying of sand particles in an one-stage dryer.
