The impact of fluidized bed polymer coating experiment on student learning and retention was investigated. The aim of experiment was to place protective coating on metal object by heating in hot air stream and dipping it in fluidized bed of thermoplastic powder. The powder was present in clear plastic cylinder which allow students to see and feel fluidization. The measurements from experiment allow students to determine bubble size, minimum fluidization and characterization of gas-solid flow regime.
