An experiment was performed to determine the convective heat-transfer coefficient to heated and cooled gas solids suspensions at a Reynolds number of 130,000. Measurements of the heat transfer were performed by traversing the stream at various locations along the pipe with specially designed probes which measured air and particle temperature locally. The results showed that for a high Reynolds number, the heat-transfer coefficient for the suspension appears to be equal to that of the pure gas at the same Reynolds number, and independent of solids loading ratio, heating or cooling, and particle size (between 0.0011 and 0.0058 in. dia).
