Intrusive and non-intrusive diagnostic tools and techniques for fluidized bed reactors are discussed here, with a focus on chemical synthesis catalytic reactions. These reactions occur in the gas phase and convert hydrocarbons to high value-added products using reactions with gaseous oxygen and possibly other reactants. Reactor operating conditions are typically limited to 500°C and 3 barg. Catalyst used is often Group A, in the 0 ɱ–200 ɱ (0 micron–200 micron) range, with > 20 wt% below 45 ɱ (fines). The diagnostic techniques presented here can be used for fluid bed systems of any size, but some methods may have temperature and pressure limitations. DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES A variety of to
