Numerical Study on Flow Characteristics in a Stirring Vessel
In order to improve the desulphurization efficiency of KR mixing method in the process of molten iron refining, the method of CFD was used to analyze the flow field in a stirring vessel. The Fluent software was adopted to simulate and analyze the internal flow rule in a 3D stirring vessel with the method of multiple reference frame approach, and the corresponding models of Euler two-phase flow fluid model and standard k-ε turbulence model were used. By comparing with the experimental result, the influence of important parameters of agitator on internal flow field in the stirring vessel, such as rotational velocity, immersion depth and impeller type was discussed, and the flow structure was analyzed as well.
