Title: Capacitance imaging system for monitoring bubble formation and flow in fluid bed simulators

Abstract

The CIS is providing researchers with unique, detailed information on the flow patterns (both solids and voids) within a cold fluid bed simulator. Researchers at METC plan tests during the fall of 92 using the 4-level, 193-pixel CIS to study flow patterns in a 30.4-cm diameter fluid bed simulator. For improved resolution the system could be converted to a 545-pixel, 8-level, 32-electrode system. This technology is applicable for multi-component flows where the components display significant differences in dielectric constants. Potential applications of this technology include measurement of high density particle flow streams and characterization of material flow/mixing patterns in commercial processes such as catalytic crackers.
