The Numerical Study of Oil Drop Jet from Oil-Air Lubrication Nozzle
Nozzle is an important part of oil-air lubrication system. This paper uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software FLUENT to study the flow field of oil air, and different air pressure and nozzle throat size are discussed. The results show that: When air pressure is increased from 0.05Mpa to 0.1Mpa, the maximum diameter (2mm) percentage reduces, but the diameters distribution is almost unchanged as the air pressure is increased to 0.3MPa. The throat diameter is decreased, the mean Sauter diameter of oil drop reduces. This paper will provide a theoretical basis for oil-air lubrication nozzle design and selection.
