Experiments have been carried out in a gas-solids co-current down-flow circulating fluidized beds. The radial profiles of particle velocity and solid concentrations were measured by a fiber optical probe. Local solid flux was calculated based on the measured local particle velocity and solid concentration. The influence of gas velocity and solid recirculation rate on the radial flow structure has been examined. The experimental results show that the radial flow structure at high gas velocity has its own prominent characteristics in comparison with that at low gas velocity.
