The authors investigate the effects of the direction of the gas jet on the solid residence time distribution in a CFB riser. Tracer technique was employed to calculate the RTD of solids. A Eulerian–Eulerian model with kinetic theory of granular flow and species transport was used to simulate the motion of tracer particles in a CFB riser. For a comparative analysis of the direction of the gas jet, simulations of vertical, horizontal and hybrid jets were carried out. The direction of the gas jet significantly influenced the axial and radial structure of bed, and hence affected the RTD for solid particles. The mean residence time of solids was changed, and the results showed that 16.3 s, 14.8 s, and 11.4 s with vertical, horizontal and hybrid jets nozzles, respectively.
