An extensive experimental investigation of conical spouted beds with high density particles were carried out by measuring bed pressure drop, particle velocity and solids hold-up in a 15 cm ID conical spouted bed at three different cone angles (30°, 45°, 60°) with Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) particles (ρp = 6050 kg/m3). The results show that the minimum external spouting velocity increases with cone angle, particle diameter and static bed height. The bed is characterized by two regions: upward moving particles with high slip in the spout and slowly downward moving particles at loosely packed conditions in the annulus.
