Abstract : Steady-state entrainment rates from fluidized beds with and without cylindrical screen packing have been measured. The results have been correlated by the equation used by Lewis et al. Screen packing reduces the rate at which particles are projected from the surface of the bed. The rate of particle disengagement, however, is adversely affected by the presence of screen packing in the disengaging space. To minimize entrainment, packing should extend only up to the surface of the dense bed. (Author)
