Fluidization of beds of two dissimilar solids is modelled by reworking the fundamental equations of fluidization. The approach followed illustrates the relationship between bed suspension and component segregation, as determined by differences in solid density and size. The need for empirical parameters is drastically reduced so that a unique representation of all types of mixture behaviour seems possible.
