Title: Estimation of Minimum Spouting Velocity in a Rectangular Spouted Bed

Abstract

Here, a study was conducted to explore the effects of static bed height, nozzle diameter, cone angle, and particle properties on the minimum spouting velocity in a 4 in × 1 in rectangular spouted bed. Tests were conducted with various solids materials (including 871 μm HPDE pellets, 3.2 mm nylon beads, 707 μm glass beads, and 1.5 mm alumina spheres), two gas inlet nozzle diameters, and two cone angles. Experimentally obtained minimum spouting velocities were compared to existing published correlations developed for cylindrical spouted beds. In each case, it was determined that the existing correlations did not adequately predict the minimum spouting velocity for a rectangular spouted bed. A new correlation is proposed.
