Experimental Study on Internal Flow Field of Wet Desulphurization Tower


Article Preview

In order to study the flue gas velocity distribution and pressure drop characteristics inside wet desulfurization Tower, experimental study has been carried out. Flow model is built with geometric scale of 1 / 12 , flue gas velocity ratio of 1 / 1 and different gas entrance angle as 12°and 7°. Experiment result shows that Spray liquid droplets made gas more evenly; The evenness of gas velocity distribution is very poor with very low gas load (<35%);The pressure drop in tower increases with increase of sprayer and increases with increase of gas load; The evenness of gas velocity distribution becomes poor and the pressure drop increases when gas inlet angle changes from 12°to 7°.
