Design of Grate Bed Heat Recovery Unit and Simulation Analysis
For the current problem that grate bed can not recover its own waste heat in the course of cycle working, combined with the structure of the chain grate and hot air flow process, a three-section heat recovery unit of grate bed and waste heat recovery hot air flow process are designed. According to the principle of repeated convective heat transfer, the amount of recovering waste heat of heat recovery unit is estimated, and simulation analysis is conducted by using fluent software. The results show: after three heat exchange between the hot exhaust gas at around 100°C and the grate bed, the hot gas at a temperature of around 427 °C can be obtained, and the waste heat recovery rate is above 60%; simulation results are compared with the estimated value so that it can be obtained that the differences between the two values in the temperature of three-section outlet gas are basically consistent, about 8°C, 4°C, 7°C respectively, which verifies the effectiveness of the heat recovery unit design and the accuracy of Fluent simulation.
