The article presents the detailed workings of a population balance model by mass developed for studying a shrinking-core dissolution process that occurs inside the fluidized bed. The behaviour of the model is discussed through examination of model predictions for monodispersed and polydispersed size distributions. The model is then applied for estimating the shrinking-core dissolution rate constant from measured conversion data. Finally, the model is used to predict the change in particle size distribution during reaction, which is pivotal for optimization of fluidized bed performance.
