A circulating fluidized bed coal gasifier cold model which consists of an acrylic riser, a downer, and a bubbling fluidized bed were set up. Flow behaviors were investigated using silica sand with the solid mass flux up to 336 kg/m2•s. The effects of the solid inventory and the seals between the three reaction zones on the solid mass flux were investigated and discussed.
