CFD Analysis of Two-Phase Flow in a Solid-Liquid Hydrocyclone
This paper presents a performance analysis of a solid-liquid hydrocyclone using Ansys-CFX software. Based on the simulation, the influence of particle volume fraction of feed flow, mean diameter of particles and viscosity of liquid phase on the two-phase flow and separating performance has been investigated for optimizing design.
