(Product number: F300E)
A glass cylindrical chamber with an air distribution plate at the bottom end allows the granular material supplied to be fluidised by a controlled and measured air flow. An adjustable cylindrical heater with surface thermocouple and power meter can be immersed at any level in, or out of the bed to allow measurement of the local heat transfer coefficient.
A moveable pressure tapping and separate thermocouple allow the pressure and temperature within the bed at any depth to be measured. The pressures, temperatures and air flow rate are recorded by a combination of instrumentation on the Compressible Flow Range F300 base unit and the optional module.
