(12a) Student Workshop on Particle Technology I


Karri, R. - Presenter, Particulate Solid Research, Inc.
Part I: More than 80% of our gasoline, 70% of our polyolefins, and a plethora of other products are made using the fluidized bed reactor (FBR) technology. From gasification to drying, fluidized beds and circulating fluidized beds provide a distinct advantage of high heat transfer and solids mobility. These features have resulted in several breakthrough technologies with better temperature control and the ability to move solids from reduction to oxidation environment. This workshop will focus on some of these breakthrough technologies.
