1. A continuous process for the conversion of inorganic solid starting particles which either are amorphous or possess a degree of order into inorganic solid product particles which(a) when the starting particles are amorphous, possess a degree of order, or (b) when the starting particles possess a degree of order, possess a different order, a different degree of order, or are amorphous, which product particles are suitable for use in or as a catalyst, in or as a carrier, or in or as an adsorbent, in which process the starting particles are dispersed in a liquid thus forming a suspension, and said suspension flows through at least two separate and substantially vertical conversion vessels which are connected in series, said suspension being agitated in each of these vessels, and the suspension flows substantially upward through the said vessels and/or the agitation is exerted on the suspension with mainly axial forces.
