Present investigation is intended to find the effect of increasing static solid bed height on the column pressure drop during gas fluidization of solids in stationary liquid. Researchers already explored the effect of increasing solid bed height for gas-solid fluidization and gas-liquid-solid fluidization but for stationary liquid fluidization this area is almost untouched. Findings suggest that for increasing solid bed height pressure drop across column increases with increasing gas velocity.
