This paper provides a review of the non-invasive techniques for studying fluidisation phenomena. These include optical photography, X-ray photography, X- and 3,-ray tomography and capacitance tomography. Their specific attributes such as speed, sensitivity and robustness, are outlined and their potential for studying various aspects of gas-solids flow in different modes of fluidization is assessed. Finally a short case study on the monitoring of the flow inside a riser and a cyclone dipleg, using capacitance tomography, is presented.
