Pressure Drop Through Fluidized Bed
The setup consists of a glass column with fluidizing material i.e. beads, S.S. mesh to support the beads and with calming section. Pressure drop across fluidization can be measured by manometer. The setup studies in fluidization characteristics and relationship between the velocity of the fluid and pressure drop per unit length. The apparatus is close circuit type provided with suitable capacity tank, 0.5 HP pump, necessary pipeline valves and a Rotameter to measure the flow rate of fluid. The setup is fitted on a MS frame painted with good quality paint.
