Metal oxide ‘s NiO:NiAl2O4, has many of the desired
properties for use in CLC; including high
chemical performance, mechanical strength and stability
and excellent durability. All properties data based on
paper.
From geldart chart
This metal oxide can be classified in group B
(sand like). It can be fluidsed on bubbling regime.
Response variable

- SD of solid volume
fraction in radial direction
and axial direction
(Mixing index)
