A cold-state spouted bed for oil shale semi-coke was designed and set up. The effect of different static bed height and particle size on the spouting pressure drop was studied. The results indicated that the spouted bed drop increased with increasing of static bed height and increasing of particle size at the same superficial air velocity. The experiential correlation equation of the minimum spouting velocity proposed by Mathur and Gishler was quoted for calculation with a correlation
