( Chemical Engineering : Adsorption and ion exchange )
Extraparticle heat transfer will depend on the surface of the particle and gas-particle relative
velocity and uniformity throughout the bed.
As the particles are convex and the packed bed is not consolidated, the structure
of the extraparticle space is relatively simple.
Extraparticle means relating to processes that happen outside the particles in a bed.
