The influence of gas distributor design on the gas-solids flow structure was investigated in a rectangular CFB riser. The gas distributor was altered five different ways. The results show that the distributor design had significant effects on the solids distribution. The changed flow structure was maintained from the entrance to the riser top. Altering the gas distributor was an effective and practical method to change the flow structure. This study may be beneficial to CFB design and operation.
