(423g) Fluidized Bed Rheology II- Applications
AIChE Annual Meeting
2017 Annual Meeting
Particle Technology Forum
Fluidization and Fluid-Particle Systems for Energy and Environmental Applications I
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 5:09pm to 5:28pm
The closed nature of the cell makes even hazardous substances as well as sub-micron particles accessible in this fashion. Being able to measure extremely small torques (+- 10 nNm) in a reproducible manner enables a proper rheological study of fluidized beds in the style of complex fluids.
In this Talk we will show multiple applications of this technology in industrially relevant sector ranging from coating technology to fine chemicals.
Special attention will be given to the original application of fluidized bed: Fluid catalytic cracking and the possible repercussions for studying FCC Catalysts. Shear rate dependent apparent viscosity measurements correlated with pressure drop, oscillatory measurements and Elutriation rate for a variety of grain size distributions and compositions.
