Experimental and theoretical studies were carried out to investigate the performance of a fluidized bed ion exchange system to remove nitrate. The exchange of nitrate on strong anion exchange resin (TULSION A-27) was studied in the flow rate range of 2 to 7 L/h. Nitrate removal was done at five conditions of the expanded bed height (Z). The results showed that the experimental data can be fitted to Richardson and Zaki equation, and the comparison between the experimental and calculated terminal velocities showed low relative error
