In this study, a fluid bed continuous dryer was designed and implemented as a prtotype. The lake salt used in the industry was carried out the drying process in this drier. The speed and temparature of the driying environment's air and the salt's mass was investigated by experimental. In the begining, the air speed of the drying was measured 4.5 m/s and it was kept on constant during the experiment. The initial humidty of the lake's salt used in experiments was determined 0,044 gwater/ gdry matter . The salt was dried with 90 minutes time span for three drying temperatures separetely. After the drying processes at 94 oC, 126 oC and 171 oC, the humitities were reduced 0.033, 0.024 ve 0.009 gwater/ gdry matter recpectively. Using the results data, drying air temperature was determined 181.511 oC for reaching the 0.005 gwater/ gdry matter of the salt
