This paper presents work on hydrodynamics of several types of biomass mixture in a dual chamber circulating fluidized bed. In designing the CFBreactornecessary to know the distribution of solid particles radially and axially influenced by fluidizing gas velocity, particle size, solid circulation flux, reactor diameter and height of the reactor. These factors will affect pressure drop along the riser of the reaction chamber. Pressure drop is an important factor in the study of hydrodynamics of particle flow. The pressure drop was measured using mathematical model compared to experimental results done on a cold mode. Since it was found that both results were consistent which means that the model can be used to predict the operating parameters of CFB design.
