|Abstract(s):||The distribution of the solid-phase in an airlift reactor of the concentric draught tube type, with an enlarged degassing zone, has been determined. Samples were taken at eight points of the reactor for various airflow rates, solids loading and density. Hold-up of solids varied considerably within the reactor. The highest value, for all tested experimental conditions, was obtained immediately above the top of the riser and the lowest value near the wall of the degassing zone.|
