Numerical Simulation of Magnetic Fluid Used in Sintering and Cooling Equipments Seals as a Functional Material
Magnetic fluid as a functional material can produce volume force under external magnetic field, for the purpose of controlling the magnetic fluid flow state in the non-magnetic sealing groove with external magnetic field, the volume force is written as a function form of AZ to do with the numerical simulation of magnetic fluid flow in the sealing groove. The result shows that the magnetic fluid which distributes at the right-angle edges of the two permanent magnets nearby the separator presents unsteady swirl flow due to the volume force, while the rest magnetic fluid is in the quiescent state. It means that the magnetic fluid seal method can effectively solve the air leakage of band sintering machine and circular cooling machine.
