Fluidization Behavior of Alumina Nano-Particles
The experimental study is conducted to determine the fluidization behavior and heat transfer variations across the bed in the bubbling fluidized bed having very fine particles. The powder is analyzed using scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Mastersizer analyzer. The bubbling fluidized bed set-up was designed, developed and installed for the hydrodynamic and heat transfer studies. From the experiments, it is found that the alumina powder with particle size range of 200nm to 10μm has agglomerate bubbling fluidized bed (ABF).
