F300E Fluidisation and Fluid Bed Heat Transfer Module
Application of fluidised beds is more widespread in industry than is usually appreciated, covering such diverse fields as power generation to food processing.
The objective of the F300E Module is to investigate the gas flow through a fixed and fluidised bed and to measure the heat transfer rate and coefficients for comparison with convective heat transfer rates in air.
Fluidisation takes place within a transparent chamber and the range of bed material supplied can be rapidly changed. Alternative locally sourced bed materials and air distributors can be easily utilised for student project work.
