Gas Velocity Measurements of Close-Coupled Atomizers


Article Preview

It is commonly considered that the character of atomizing gas-flowing field would affect breaking method of molten metal, liquid droplet size and mass distribution. It is one of the important factors which determine the microstructure and metallurgical quality of products. In this paper, three types of atomizers were designed and Pitot tube was used to investigate the steady state gas flow field generated by a close-coupled spray deposition atomizer. Through the study of atomization gas velocity distribution by simulation and experiment, the construction and gas flow dynamical property were introduced in this paper.
