Hydrodynamic features of a loop-seal operated as solids re-injection device in a labscale cold CFB apparatus are studied. Gas flow patterns are characterized by means of gas tracing experiments with continuous injection of CO2 in the loop-seal chambers. Solids flow patterns are characterized by impulsive injection of dyecoloured particles into the supply chamber, followed by particle tracking.
