Experimental studies using electrical capacitance volume tomography (ECVT) are conducted to examine gas-solid flows in a riser and a bend of a 0.05 m (2 in) ID gas-solid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) system. The quantitative measurements using ECVT are made that illustrate a three-dimensional symmetric core-annulus structure in the riser and a non-centro-symmetric core-annulus structure in the bend. Results on the volume solids holdup distributions in the riser and in the bend at various operating conditions are also obtained.
