Pressure drop through fluidized beds using the Ergun equation

Ergun equation is used to calculate the pressure drop in a flow through a porous medium. The equation is widely used in industrial applications such as fluidized beds, HVAC, pressure losses through commercial filters and leakage quantification in burried pipes. This online application will calculate the pressure drop in Pa through a pack bed container.
