Feeding system for fluidised bed systems

Feeding of any kind of feedstock into a kind of fluidised bed reactor usually requires especially at enhanced pressure levels - costly feeding systems with screw-feeders, lock hopper systems and security installations. They are usually not only costly but also fault-prone systems.

The feeding System used for the BioHPR prototypes uses a very simple physical effect and allows feed fuel particles directly into the fluidised bed trough a simple gravity chute. The physical effect ensures that the particles enter the fluidised bed at the bottom level and allows even controlling the feeding rate.

The system may be used with any fluidised bed gasification or combustion system.
