Article Preview

Based on the analysis of structural characteristic superiority, the process of combustion, flue gas flow and heat transfer in the upright magnesium reducing furnace, the three dimensional mathematical model is devoloped. And numerical simulation is performed further with the commercial software FLUENT. Finally, the flow and temperature field in furnace and temperature field in reducing pot have been obtained. The results indicate that the upright magnesium reducing furnace has perfect flue gas flow field and temperature field to meet the challenge of the magnesium reducing process; the major factors that affect the magnesium reducing reaction are the low thermal conductivity of slag and the high chemical reaction heat absorption.
