Abstract:

Certain reactors for conducting processes in a fluidized bed are made up of a body and housing in which a cooling agent for example circulates. The fluidized bed in these devices is created either by means of a gas flowing through a gas-diffusion barrier or mechanically by the rotation of a blade system or fan, or in a centrifugal force field by creating a certain organization in the rotating flow of the fluidized medium. The distinguishing feature of the proposed reactor is that it is made of a nonmagnetic nonconductive material housed within a stator with a rotating magnetic field. The processed material nickel, for example becomes fluidized. This makes it possible to process ferromagnetic materials at elevated pressures, in a vacuum, in the gas phase and in a fluid to process particles without the loss of small particles from the processing zone.
