The new concept of a rotating fluidized bed in a static geometry (RFB-SG) is presented (1). The rotating motion of the particle bed and the tangential fluidization of the solids are obtained by the tangential injection of the fluidization gas via multiple gas inlet slots in the outer cylindrical wall of the fluidization chamber. The new fluidization concept is experimentally investigated and proven using either large diameter, low density polymer particles or small diameter, higher density Alumina particles.
