Gas streaming has been modeled in a deep fluidized bed of 5 m depth and 0.3 m inside diameter. The model results suggest that the lower pressure drop of the stream zone compared to the remainder of the bed is the reason for severe streaming flow in deep beds. The effects of different parameters such as bed depth, gas velocity and particle size on the severity of the streaming flow are also evaluated with the model.
