The Computer Controlled Fixed and Fluidised Bed Unit, "LFFC", allows a full study about everything concerning the flow of a fluid through a particles bed, both fixed and fluidised.
The unit is composed of two transparent removable columns for the simultaneous study of the air and water flow through the bed.
In the Computer Controlled Fixed and Fluidised Bed Unit, "LFFC", the pressure drop caused by the bed is measured by a differential pressure sensor connected to each column.
Water is pumped from a tank, located at the back side of the unit, to the bottom of the first column, passing through a flow control valve and a flow sensor.
Air is supplied to the second column through a compressor located at the back of the unit. The air flow is measured by a differential pressure sensor and an orifice plate.
There are glass beads of two different sizes for the bed.
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
