The flow characteristics of sawdust particles in loop seal of a circulating fluidized bed were investigated. This paper focused on the effect of different operation conditions such as operation gas velocity, the transport gas volume Q1 and the auxiliary transport gas volume Q2 on the solids circulation rate Gs. The experimental equation modified from Wang's on solids circulation rate G5 and operation conditions were also given.
