A theoretical model has been developed to describe the flow behavior of conducting particles in a fluidized bed electrode for electro winning of metal ions present in the dilute solution. Model equations have been developed for potential and current distributions and mass transfer rates. The influence of operating parameters on particle growth has been critically examined. It has been observed from the present investigation that the particle size increased with electrolysis time. The present model simulations have been compared with the experimental data reported in the literature and observed that the model predictions satisfactorily match with the reported experimental findings.
