The main objective of this study was to measure the heat transfer from particle to gas in a dilute CFB riser (  0.8 ) and to derive a predictive equation for the local particle-gas heat transfer coefficient. This coefficient was found to be a strong function of the particle velocity, concentration and length of the heat transfer section. Accordingly, a new correlation in terms of these parameters is proposed.
