Figure 3 shows the separation results obtained at different fluidization numbers at a vibration frequency of 35 kHz and at a fluidizing time of 30 s.
For this set-up [60], the fluidizing column is 2.464 m high with 0.267 m inner diameter, while the disengaging section has a diameter of 0.667 m and a height of 1.745 m.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology's RoboClam is a technology for efficiently embedding objects into the seabed by locally fluidizing the soil to reduce burrowing forces and energy.
There are a number of independent variables controlling the process and thus granule characteristics: fluidizing air flow rate, atomizing air pressure, inlet temperature (Tinlet fluidizing air), inlet air humidity (RHinlet fluidizing air), and binder addition rate (spray rate).
The formed mixing gases, which are composed of shale oil vapor, steam, fuel gases and fluidizing gases, flow downstream in turn through a gas-solid separator and a gas-liquid separator, producing a shale oil-water mixture, fuel gases and semicoke powder.
That is why fluidization process needs more fluid for fluidizing fine particles than spouting process.
"Cpp" and "Cpg" are the heat capacities of the particles and the fluidizing gas respectively.
Calcining heat is added with a controlled process temperature normally set at 1,350-1,650F (732-899C).The sand leaves the chamber by flowing over a weir, then travels through the transfer duct by gravity into the precool chamber, where it is cooled by the fluidizing air.
In general, the experiments are complex during the handling or fluidizing of these powders.
