Abstract

Repeated particle-particle and particle-wall collisions and frictions lead to the generation and accumulation of electrostatic charges in the gas-solid fluidized beds. Variations of electrostatic signals are a rich source of information on particle motions and charging, which have rarely been explored and interpreted. To gain a more comprehensive understanding of the induced electrostatic signals in the fluidized beds, an array of arc-shaped induced electrostatic sensors were attached to the outer wall of a fluidized bed. Combined with cross-correlation method, induced electrostatic voltage signals and correlation velocity of particles were measured simultaneously. It was found that electrostatic charges accumulation restrained the particle motions while the average correlation velocity of particles increased with the amount of injecting liquid antistatic agent. Based on the analyses of induced electrostatic signals, the particle correlation velocity, and the particles charge-to-mass ratio under different charging levels, a predictive model of the average particles charge-to-mass ratio was established. Compared with the results obtained from Faraday cup, the estimated results showed a relative error no more than 40%. Simultaneous measurement of particle correlation velocity and particles charge-to-mass ratio were complemented by arc-shaped induced electrostatic sensors array combined with cross-correlation method.
