In industrial practice, it is important to have a method for early detection of changes in fluidized bed behaviour, e.g., to warn about upcoming bed agglomeration. Recently, a number of new monitoring methods based on observing the non-linear dynamics of measured pressure fluctuations have been reported. In this paper, these methods for monitoring fluidization are discussed and the expected future developments are described.
