Solids volume fraction and particle velocity profiles were measured with a fiber optical probe in a cold circulating fluidized bed test rig with 6 parallel cyclones and a pant leg. Results in the pant leg zone, main bed zone and exit zone of the furnace are reported. The work also includes the influences of superficial gas velocity, secondary air rate and static bed height on the gas-solids hydrodynamics.
