Abstract

This paper reports, for the first time, the solids behaviour in a dilute gas-solid two-phase mixture flowing through monolith channels. The non-intrusive positron emission particle tracking (PEPT) technique was used in the work, which allowed investigation of three-dimensional solids motion at the single suspended particle level. Processing of the PEPT data gave solids velocity and occupancy in the monolith channels. The results showed a non-uniform radial distribution of both the solids velocity and concentration. The highest axial solids velocity occurred in monolith channels located in the central part of the column, whereas the highest solids concentration took place at a position approximately 0.7 times the column radius. The axial distribution of the axial solids velocity showed an entrance region with a length of approximately 33 times the hydrodynamic diameter of a monolith channel under the conditions of this work. Analysis of the PEPT data also gave distributions of particle residence time and tortuosity in terms of solids motion. The distributions were approximately Gaussian-type with the tortuosity distribution more skewed toward the right hand side. The peak residence time and tortuosity decreased with increasing superficial gas velocity and the distributions were broadened at lower superficial gas velocities. The results of this work also provided a possible explanation to our previously observed early laminar-to-turbulent flow transition in monolith channels.
