The loop seal aeration effect on the supply side has been studied through small scale CFB experimentation. Parameters affected include inventory allocation and entrainment. The gas velocity in the standpipe is influenced by loop seal aeration and riser velocity. Variation in slugging behavior above and below solid downflow velocity of 0.025 m/s is analyzed and discussed here.
