The analysis of experimental method for the evaluation of Umf in gas fluidized beds was carried out. It was based on pressure fluctuation measurements in which Umf is determined by the relationship between the standard deviation of pressure measurements and fluid velocity. Unlike previous works, this method was used to determine the minimum fluidization velocity of polydisperse beds of biomass (milled litter), and for beds of mixture of coal ash or sand particles and straw pellets. The experiments were carried out at room temperature in a transparent apparatus with a diameter of 172 mm. It was found that for some mixtures it is impossible to determine Umf from the curve of the pressure drop in the bed on fluid velocity. On the other hand, the method of determining Umf from the relationship between standard deviation of pressure measurements and fluid velocity allows this to be done for all studied beds.
