Abstract

The effects of the gas- and solids-distributor design and the operating conditions on the development of the flow structure in a gas-solids pilot-scale, cold model downer reactor were studied using FCC particles and three different distributor designs. Local solids holdups and particle velocities were measured using two separate fiber optic sensors. Finally, the results obtained were analyzed.
