Numerical Simulation of Performance of Steam Ejector Influenced by the Distance between Nozzle Outlet and Mixing Chamber Inlet
The performance of a steam ejector was simulated using FLUENT. The performance of steam ejector was studied by changing the distance between primary nozzle outlet and mixing chamber inlet (DPM) while operating pressures and other geometric parameters were not varied. The entrainment ratios of the steam ejector with different values of DPM were calculated. The optimum range of DPM was given, which is changed from 1.8 to 2 times of the throat diameter of hybrid diffuser pipe. The errors of the CFD results to the experimental results of the entrainment ratio are not more than 15%.
