Abstract

An empirical approach has been developed to predict the total entrainment flux at different levels of freeboard height. The approach is based on the results of experimental investigations carried out in a 152 mm diameter column, with FCC as the feed powder. The powder was fluidized at superficial gas velocities of 0.2 m/s and 0.7 m/s.
