ZM8131 Fixed and Fluidized Bed Apparatus Didactic Equipment Fluid Mechanics Experiment Equipment

INTRODUCTION

This equipment has been designed to study how a water or air flow crosses fixed and fluidized beds of solid particles and to observe the difference between “aggregative” and

“particulate” fluidization. Moreover this unit can be used to obtain experimental data of fluidization of real beds (catalyst beds, filtration beds, etc…).

 

TRAINING PROGRAM

This unit enables to deepen the following issues:

  • Pressure drop in fixed or fluidized bed with water or air
  • Ergun equation and simplified forms (Carman-Kozeny and Burke-Plummer equations)
  • Determining bed porosity
  • Checking the different types of fluidization (particulate and aggregative)
