  • An experimental device aimed at simulating interactions in a fluidization process was designed, built, and tested to allow future study of drop-particle impact at high temperatures. The design parameters were defined based on theoretical investigations. A feasibility study were developed using QFD method to select appropriate mechanisms for the device. The available experimental data were analyzed and the required calculations were conducted to determine the design values. The technical drawings and procurement documents were prepared and the device was constructed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering machine shop. The device's performance was tested afterwards in different ways. The device is capable of providing a test environment with different temperatures (ambient to 200 ºC). This experimental device can be used to investigate the influence of different variable parameters, such as drop and particle properties and sizes, collision velocity, impact parameter and collision angles (90º to 180º) on drop-particle impact.
