This study aimed to explain why previous packed bed reactor heat transfer performance heating and cooling experiments did not agree within engineering error. In order to explain the disagreement, cooling experiments were performed in a 4 inch column and compared to previous cooling experiments in order to validate data collection methods. The experiments were then performed in a 2 inch column to compare data from this study, a previous Major Qualifying Project, and a heating experiment from literature. The data in this study was comparable to heating data, which was a result of adding a correction factor and using modified data collection methods.
