Erosion Wear of Two-phase Flow Tee Pipe
Keywords:two-phase flow, tee pipe, erosion, inlet diameter
Particles erosion wear always consist in the intersection of tee pipe, which is an inevitable problem. In order to obtain the erosion wear characteristics of two-phase flow tee pipe, several cases of different inlet diameters are investigated numerically in this paper. Euler-Lagrange method is adopted to describe the gas-solid two-phase flow and the finite volume method is adopted to solve the erosion results. Meshing O-type grids to obtain the reasonable boundary layer in ICEM CFD. By verifying and comparing the turbulence intensity and velocity of the six meshes, a reasonable finite element model is selected. Intersection, the severest erosion region, is the location where the gas flow direction changes. The inlet diameter determines the region of the impact particles directly hitting the wall. When the inlet diameter is smaller, the erosion of the intersection is severer. As the inlet velocity increases, both the erosion of the intersection and the outlet pipe become severer. However, there are only the erosion scars at the intersection are affected, with the increase of particle mass flow.
