Abstract Pyrometallurgical processes may be expected to be dominated by fluidized bed technology. There is an enormous variety of equipment options available with different fluid bed configurations allowing co-, cross-, and counter-current flow of particulate and fluidizing medium, at fluidizing velocities ranging from incipient to transport. Reactor systems may be set up so that either phase may be in plug flow, fully stirred, or with a controlled degree of backmixing. This paper discusses the design decisions required in selecting the appropriate configuration, and reviews some of the current and potential applications of fluid bed processes in the non-ferrous metal industry.
