Monitoring of scaling in dilute phase pneumatic conveying systems using non-intrusive acoustic sensors – A feasibility study
Scale formation in pneumatic conveying systems is a major industrial challenge. The underlying scale formation mechanisms can be intricate as they often involve a combination of several mutually enhancing binding forces and can be affected by a number of different factors. A non-intrusive monitoring...
Impact of solids loading and mixture composition on the classification efficiency of a novel cross-flow fluidized bed classifier
A feasibility study of real-time monitoring techniques for scale deposition thickness in pneumatic conveying pipelines
In this study, the feasibility of two techniques for real-time monitoring of scale deposition thickness were evaluated. Traditional pressure drop measurements and a variant of the heat pulse monitoring technique which was developed in this study were tested and compared in a lab scale experiment. Me...
Fluidized Bed Classification of Particles of Different Size and Density
The main objectives of this study were to quantify the classification efficiency of a binary mixture of two different particle types and to demonstrate that CPFD can be used to simulate the main features of the classification process. A lab-scale cylindrical fluidized bed (8.4 cm inner diameter, 150...
SCIENTIFIC INVESTIGATION ON INFLUENCE OF PARTICLE SIZE ON EROSIVE WEAR BY CaCO3
Mass loss of inner wall surface due to particle impact, also referred as erosive wear, is a common challenge encountered in industrial pneumatic conveying systems. Hard bulk material tends to interact with the surface and ultimately results leakages into the surrounding. Previous studies have shown ...
