Fixed and fluidized beds apparatus


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.

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)
