Unfortunately, in the application shown in Figure 1, because of limitations in the vertical height available between the overflow weir in the side of the calciner and the lime cooler the solids transfer system as designed could not operate as a stable L-valve because (a) the vertical leg was shorter than the horizontal leg, (b) the aeration point was not positioned above the centre line of the horizontal pipe (c) the discharge end of the horizontal leg was higher than the level of the fluidized bed in the cooler and (d) the valve diameter (200 mm) was so large that the minimum controllable solids flow rate was almost seven times the design production rate.
