From measurements of double layer capacity, collision frequency and contact time during collision, it is concluded that models for charge transfer in the discontinuous phase of fluidized bed electrode that are based on ideal particulate fluidization cannot explain metal phase resistivities, experimentally observed. Based on a literature survey it is shown that not only gas-solid but also liquid-solid fluidization is at least partially aggregative. A preliminary model for charge transfer in the discontinuous phase, based on aggregative fluidization, is derived.
