From these simulations design changes to the reactor have been explored including decreasing fluidization volumetric flow rate, altering fluidizing gases, inclusion and design of a carbon stripper. The fluidization volumetric flow rate needed to be decreased proportional to the volatile content of the fuel, this is to maintain proper fluidization regime. The fluidizing gases in the air to fuel reactor loopseal needed to maintain high enough oxygen content as to not introduce oxygen uncoupling in the loopseal resulting in decrease in oxygen transferred to the fuel reactor. From simulations a simple carbon stripper was designed to be used in the system.
