Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of Gas Flow Field in Gas-Liquid Hydrocyclone Separator
  Abstract

The gas flow field in hydrocyclone separator was numerically simulated by applying RSM turbulence model, and the gas flow velocity distribution and stress distribution were calculated. According to the characteristics of gas flow distribution within the separator, it is found that: (1) the rotating strength of gas flow is related to the outlet angle of guide blade, the greater the outlet angle, the smaller the tangential velocity; (2) the obvious short circuit flow distribution under the exhaust pipe mouth area is easy to carry droplets and roll them out, causing a decrease in separation efficiency; (3) the high strength of turbulence pulse at mouth area of vent and drainage is easy to break the droplets and decrease their diameter, which affects the separation efficiency. The above research results lay the foundation for the structure optimization and the improvement of separation properties of axial guide vane cyclone gas-liquid separator.
