The concept of complete segregation of a binary-solid particulate fluidized bed is generalized to accommodate cases where the bottom zone contains an equilibrium mixture of the two solid components. The model is fully predictive and provides a complete explanation of the "inversion phemonenon" in close agreement with recently published experimental studies.
