Air at ambient conditions was used to dry moist particles at various fluidisation velocities. Throughout the drying process, images of the material distribution were recorded using Electrical Capacitance Tomography (ECT). Simultaneously, the outlet air moisture content was measured using temperature/humidity probe. The ECT data were used to quantify the bubbles characteristics while the air moisture content was used to calculate the drying rate. To avoid the complexity of the process, the fluidised bed was operated at single bubbling regime. The experimental results are discussed in relation to the different drying mechanisms.
