If gas is passed through the plate so that the gas is evenly distributed across the column, the drag force on the particles produced by the gas flowing through the particles increases as the gas flow through the bed is increased. When the gas flow through the bed causes the drag forces on the particles to equal the weight of the particles in the bed, the particles are fully supported and the bed is said to be fluidized.
