Research on Influencing Factors for Stirring Effect of Blender Truck
Stirring system of blender truck as an important equipment of fracturing unit, its stirring effect has great influence on performance of fracturing fluid and fracturing operation of fracturing unit, so it is necessary to study the influencing factors for stirring effect of blender truck. On the basis of the theory of the orthogonal test method and the requirement of the design on the stirring system, the factors and their levels of numerical simulation experiment are confirmed and the orthogonal test scheme is established in this paper. Also the numerical simulation for mixing process of stirring system of the blender truck is carried out with CFD software. The influence degree of the factors on stirring effect is obtained with the range analysis method, the optimal structure size of stirring system is achieved according to this result.
