The heat transfer results of Agnew and Potter are re-analyzed using additional data obtained from mass transfer experiments carried out with geometrically identical beds. A two-phase heat conduction model of the packed bed is employed to relate this additional data to the heat transfer situation. The results indicate that radial transfer by fluid dispersion is identical in the two transfer situations and this agreement is interpreted as a confirmation of the validity of the theoretical basis of the analysis.
