Research on the Flow Field of the Exhaust Valve for High Temperature Booster Pump
Exhaust valve is the key component of the reciprocating high temperature booster pump, its performance will directly affect the characteristic of the reciprocating high temperature booster pump. In order to improve the performance of the booster pump from structural optimization design, two types of exhaust valve are designed. Finite volume method is used to simulate the velocity filed and pressure field of the two types of exhaust valve. Simulation results show that the velocity gradient and pressure gradient of the cone-type exhaust valve is smaller and more uniform than the disk-type exhaust valve, and the performance of cone-type exhaust valve is better than the performance of disk-type exhaust valve, which provides the valuable theoretical basis for the exhaust valve in the practical production.
