Abstract

A new experimental technique for measuring particle cycle times, times of occurrence of particles at different levels, and particle velocities in the spout of a spouted bed is described. A magnetized marker particle and search coil or coils are employed together with a microprocessor system for ease of data collection and processing. The magnetic particles have the same diameter, density and similar surface texture to bed particles to ensure proper representation. Data is presented on distributions of cycle time and particle velocity and implied particle mass circulation rates at different levels in a spouted bed. Comparisons are made with photographic and laser-doppler anemometry techniques.
