Abstract: A heat exchanger with a shallow gas-solid fluidized bed was experimentally studied in order to analyze energy recovery from solid particles leaving a combustion process. The experiments were carried out with and without vertical baffles in a fluidized bed with immersed horizontal tubes filled with water, in a counter flow arrangement. Two particle diameters (254 and 385 mum), two solid flow rates (50 and 80 kg/h) and two gas flow rates (46 and 50 kg/h) were tested, The bed temperature along the equipment length, the mass flow rate and the inlet and outlet temperatures of solid particles, air and water were measured in order to obtain the bed-tube heat transfer coefficient and the heat exchanger effectiveness. An increment of about 55% in the heat transfer coefficient and higher values of the heat exchanger effectiveness, in experiments with the presence of baffles, was verified. The experimental results also showed that the suspension-wall heat transfer coefficient increased considerably with the solid flow rate and also when the particle diameter decreased.
