Abstract : In this report, an experiment about measuring minimum fluidization velocity and the sand particles diameter in a bed was discussed. In order to calculate the diameter, the minimum fluidization velocity must be found. Air flowing from a compressor is passed through the fluidised sand bed. Pressure drop was measured at different flow rates. Graphically, the minimum fluidization velocity was .0625 m/s while .000267 m from eq. (4) and .00063927 m from eq. (2) were found to be the average diameter of sand particles with an error percentage of 139%, reasons for high error percentage will be discussed in the report.

Introduction: Fluidized bed is commonly used in chemical industries. The main purpose to use them is to increase both the surface area and the contact time between the solid and the fluid. In our experiment the fluidized bed is built from two opposite glass walls sealed and filled
