A novel two-interconnected fluidized bed system was developed to separate fine and coarse particles by means of particle size difference. Coarse (212~300 μm) and fine (63~106 μm) particles were separated perfectly using the solid separator. The effects of the fluidizing velocity, solid injection velocity, diameter of solid injection nozzle, and solid height on the solid separation rate were investigated. Moreover, continuous solid separation and circulation test up to 20 hours was performed to check feasibility of stable operation.
