Description

Fluidization Engineering, Second Edition, expands on its original scope to encompass these new areas and introduces reactor models specifically for these contacting regimes. Completely revised and updated, it is essentially a new book. Its aim is to distill from the thousands of studies those particular developments that are pertinent for the engineer concerned with predictive methods, for the designer, and for the user and potential user of fluidized beds.

Key Features

  • Covers the recent advances in the field of fluidization.
  • Presents the studies of developments necessary to the engineers, designers, and users of fluidized beds.

Table of Contents

Introduction; Industrial Applications of Fluidized Beds; Fluidization and Mapping of Regimes; The Dense Bed: Distributors, Gas Jets, and Pumping Power; Bubbles in Dense Beds; Bubbling Fluidized Beds; Entrainment and Elutration from Fluidized Beds; High-Velocity Fluidization; Solid Movement: Mixing, Segregation, and Staging; Gas Dispersion and Gas Interchange in Bubbling Beds; Particle-to-Gas Mass and Heat Transfer; Conversion of Gas in Catalytic Reactions; Heat Transfer between Fluidized Beds and Surfaces; The RTD and Size Distribution of Solids in Fluidized Beds; Circulation Systems; Design for Physical Operations; Design of Catalytic Reactors; The Design of Non catalytic Gas-Solid Reactors.
