    Abstract

    A detailed design of pressure separation by packed columns of particles, in a solar-thermochemical reactor prototype, is presented. Results show that the concept is sound and robust under a multitude operational conditions. Straightforward control approaches, such as pumping speed and pressure adjustments, can be implemented to cover a wide range of contingencies.
