A new X-ray computed tomography technique for the purpose of imaging fluidized beds is presented. It consists of an experimental set-up with three stationary X-ray source and flat panel detector pairs, a geometric calibration and data processing workflow, and an image reconstruction algorithm. The technique enables sparse-angular tomographic...

The agglomeration of cohesive particles can deteriorate fluidization quality and cause the defluidization of a bed, which is a common issue found in the applications of fluidized beds. This study aims to gain a better understanding of particle cohesion on agglomeration/fluidization behaviors and the effective methods for achieving a better...

Vibro-assisted fluidization of cohesive micro-silica has been studied by means of X-ray imaging, pressure drop measurements, and off-line determination of the agglomerate size. Pressure drop and bed height development could be explained by observable phenomena taking place in the bed; slugging, channeling, fluidization or densification. It...

In this study, the impact of different vibrational modes on the fluidization characteristics of cohesive micro- and nano-silica powder was examined. Fractional pressure drop, bed expansion measurements, and X-ray imaging were utilized to characterize the fluidization quality. The densities of the emulsion phase at the top and bottom of the...

The Netherlands is prone to flooding as more than a quarter of the country lies under sea level. To combat flooding and ensure that the country remains dry structures such are levees and dikes have been installed. However, older water retaining structures are more than ever failing the stringent safety standard assessments. These older...

The presence of particles in a flow can change the flow behaviour in an unpredictable manner, that leads us to multiphase flow. Multiphase flows are present in nature and in everyday life around us. The most common example of a multiphase flow, that one can think of, is the treatment of drinking water using liquid-solid fluidization in softening...

Reducing noise pollution during offshore monopile installation is crucial for marine life. Current installation methods create too much noise or do not have the certainty of reaching the required depths. By using a Vibrohammer combined with a Jet-ring this problem could be solved. A Jet-ring is a tool to reduce the sand induced inside shaft...

Fluidization of nanoparticle agglomerates is a promising technique to process nanoparticles. However, possible elutriation of small agglomerates may cause significant loss of bed material. To obtain the elutriation behavior under stable operation, in this study the elutriation fraction of silica nanoparticle agglomerates is measured in a...

This work focuses on the numerical modelling and experimental validation of the hydrodynamic behaviour of a novel 50 kW<sub>th</sub> indirectly heated bubbling fluidized bed steam reformer. The hydrodynamic behaviour of fluidized beds with immersed vertical tubes and complex fluidized bed geometries in general have not been thoroughly...

Carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies, such as CO<sub>2</sub> methanation, generally require energy-intensive CO<sub>2</sub> capture and separation processes prior to catalytic CO<sub>2</sub> conversion. In contrast, integrated CO<sub>2</sub> capture and reduction (CCR) technologies that use dual function materials (DFM) can...

The fluidization of cohesive powders has been extensively researched over the years. When looking at literature on the fluidization of cohesive particles, one will often find papers concerned with only micro- or only nano-sized powders. It is, however, unclear whether they should be treated differently at all. In this paper, we look at...

Liquid-solid fluidisation is frequently encountered in drinking water treatment processes, often to obtain a large liquid-solid interfacial surface area. A large surface area is crucial for optimal seeded crystallisation in full-scale softening reactors. Due to crystallisation, particles grow and migrate to a lower zone in the reactor which...

Granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration is an important unit operation in drinking water treatment. GAC filtration is widely used for its filtration and adsorption capabilities as a barrier for undesired organic macro- and micro-pollutants. GAC filtration consists of two successive phases: adsorption and filtration, capturing the impurities...

Fluidization of cohesive pharmaceutical powders is difficult to achieve and typically requires the introduction of external forces. This study investigates the fluidization of the fine inhalation grade of lactose powders (size range from 0.1-20 μm) that are specifically developed for dry powder inhalation (DPI) applications. The fluidization...

Having proper correlations for hydrodynamic forces is essential for successful CFD-DEM simulations of a fluidized bed. For spherical particles in a fluidized bed, efficient correlations for predicting the drag force, including the crowding effect caused by surrounding particles, are already available and well tested. However, for elongated...

For the past century, fluidized beds have been standard equipment in many branches of industry. In most applications they are used to manipulate granular and powder-like materials, whose particles can roughly be approximated as spheres. Therefore, numerical models and investigations have focused mainly on fluidized beds with spherical particles....

In biomass processing fluidized beds are used to process granular materials where particles typically possess elongated shapes. However, for simplicity, in computer simulations particles are often considered spherical, even though elongated particles experience more complex particle–particle interactions as well as different hydrodynamic...

In many industrial applications, particles used in fluidized bed clearly deviate from ideal spheres. This leads to an increasing need for better understanding and developing better simulation models for fluidization of non-spherical particles. So far, the literature is quite scarce when it comes to experimental results which can be used for...

A novel approach to Multiphase-Particle-in-Cell (MP-PIC), called Continuum Particle Model (CPM), is developed for dense gas-particle flows. CPM has high computational speed, comparable to that of MP-PIC, but a robustness and accuracy closer to that of a Discrete Element Model (DEM). The gas phase is treated as a continuum phase and particles...

The possibility to offer good intermixing between particles is one of the main properties that make fluidized beds such an important industrial appliance. In this work, we use CFD-DEM simulations to compare mixing characteristics of spherical (AR-1) to elongated spherocylindrical particles (AR-4) of aspect ratio In simulation of AR-4...
