RAPID HEAT TRANSFER MANIPULATION OF FINE POWDER BY USE OF A FLUIDIZED BED
Experiments were performed to investigate the rapid heat transfer manipulation of the powder by use of a fluidized bed. Fine glass beads were injected into the test section as the testing powder. Injection rate and diameter of the powder, flow rate and temperature of the main flow, and diameter of the bed particles were adopted as the parameters. The effects of these parameters on the heat transfer characteristics of both the fluidized bed and of the powder in the current system were extensively determined.
