Parr Fluidized Bed Reactors for Solids Processing

Fluidized Bed ReactorThere are many applications and configurations for which fluidized bed reactors have been successfully deployed in industry. The core element of a fluidized bed is the upward flow of a fluid (usually gas) through a bed of solids at a high enough flow rate to suspend or fluidize the particles in the fluid but not so high that they are transported out of the reactor. This leads to increased interaction between solids and fluid and decreased interaction of solids with each other and the wall. It also makes it easier to recover and/or recycle the bulk solids from the reactor.

These characteristics give fluidized bed reactor systems advantages over other types of reactors for some applications, despite the increase in complexity compared to fixed bed reactors.
