The flow into conventional fluid and spouted beds cannot be turned down much below design flow without getting back flow of solids through the grid or down the inlet pipe and cannot be turned off and back on again without emptying the bed. The restart device enables a 100% turndown and restart without emptying the bed and prevents backflow of granules.
