Methods for Design and Optimisation of Fluidized and Spouted Bed Reactors and Dryers
Fluidized and spouted beds have gained prominence in process industries for carrying out a number of gas-solid operations like catalytic reactions, non-catalytic reactions, combustion, adsorption, drying and even for simple mixing of solids. The present report deals with the design, simulation and optimisation of fluidized and spouted beds for a variety of different applications. The associated equipments in such installations like air-blowers, compressors, heat exchangers, cyclones etc. are also covered.
The report consists of the following chapters
The various mathematical calculational procedures are illustrated with the help of 50 worked-out examples. These should be extremely useful to operating plants for understanding the operation of fluidized and spouted beds leading to their optimisation, to designers for designing optimum equipments, and to engineers and plant operators as an effective learning/training aid.
