Circulated Fluidized Bed
Application ID: 12297
This is model of a circulated fluidized bed, which is a very common apparatus in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical processing industry for solid-fluid contacting. The dispersed phase, consisting of solid spherical particles, is fluidized by air and transported upwards through a vertical riser. Upon reaching the outlet, the dispersed phase is reinjected through vertical slots at the bottom of the bed. The solid and fluid phases are modeled using the Euler-Euler Model.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
