This set of Fluidization Engineering Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Heat Exchanger”.

1. Why are the fluidized bed extensively used for heat exchangers, in both physical and chemical processes?
a) Ability to rapidly transport heat
b) Maintain uniform temperature
c) Utilization of entire area for heat distribution
d) All of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: Because all the above mentioned are achieved.

Questions (2-4) based on below fig;
2. What are the solids/liquid that is flowing from (1) ?
The solids/liquid that is flowing from (1) is Hot alumina
a) Hot alumina
b) Hot air
c) Steam
d) Sand particles
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Since it is fluidized cooler for hot alumina particles.

3. From above fig, what is the maximum number turns of pipes inside the fluidized cooler?
a) 5-10 turns
b) 10-15 turns
c) 15-20 turns
d) Depending on the area provided
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: It depends on how much area has been provided irrespective of the number of turns.

4. From above fig, if the numbers represented as (1) and (2) are interchanged, i.e. the inlet components are reversed, will it have any effect on the process?
a) No effect
b) Slows down the productivity
c) Helps in increasing the cooling of hot alumina
d) Incomplete cooling
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Since the amount of flow of alumina is less.

5. In order to efficiently recover heat from exit gases from a rotary kiln for cement clinker, how should be the solids present?
a) Agglomerated and palletized
b) Made into fine dust of 200 mesh
c) Should be of 10-15 microns
d) It doesn’t matter
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Otherwise it will lead to clogging of distributor.
