(27a) Student Workshop on Particle Technology II
Demonstration of Particle Technology in Action: If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a thousand pictures and a live demonstration is worth a thousand videos. This session will also illustrate some of the awe-inspiring and unique features in the field of particle technology through hands-on demonstrations on fluidization, hopper design, segregation, etc.
The featured demonstration unit will include a mini-circulating fluidized bed (CFB) prototype comprising a riser, standpipe, and cyclone. The cold-flow mini-CFB is capable of fluidizing particles classified as Geldart groups A, B, C and D in various fluidization regimes, such as bubbling, turbulent, transport regimes, etc.
