Horizontal Penetration of Gas-Liquid Spray Jets in Gas-Solid Fluidized Beds

By Siva Ariyapadi, Franco Berruti, Cedric Briens, Jennifer McMillan and David Zhou


A new method has been developed to predict the horizontal jet penetration of gas-liquid sprays injected into gas-solid fluidized beds. The technique involves combining a theoretical model to predict the momentum flux of two-phase sprays with the Benjelloun et al. (1995) correlation for gas jets. Following this treatment, a generalized version of the jet penetration correlation has been developed, which includes the effect of nozzle geometry. The correlation predictions are in very good agreement with the experimental data for a wide range of nozzle geometries, nozzle scales, and jet fluids
