A mathematical model which can help to calculate the separation efficiency of streamlined plate gas-liquid separator was derived on the basis of the plug flow model. Both experiment and simulation were carried out to verify the model results. In the experiment, an aerosol spectrometer measurement system Promo-3000 by Palas Germany was used for measuring the size distribution and mass concentration of water droplets in the inlet and outlet and further to obtain the grade separation efficiency. Then the performance of the streamlined plates was evaluated at different gas velocities. In simulation, Realizable k-ε and enhanced wall treatment were applied in Fluent 14.5 with the same conditions as that in experiment. The results show that the model results agree well with that from experiment and simulation on the variation tendency of efficiency. The turning angle in space and the width of outlet are two main factors influencing the performance of streamlined plate gas-liquid separator. To increase the angle and reduce the width in every concave or convex channel space can obviously improve the efficiency. A new universal method to design and optimize corrugated plate geometry was provided. According to the model result and this method, the economical and high-efficient variant plates are put forward, which are significant to the industrial application. © 2017

This paper mainly presents a numerical study of the gas flow in horizontal turbo air classifiers. The effect of the air-inlet direction on the performance of classifier was also investigated through powder classification experiments. The simulated results show that the vertical vortex is the dominant flow in conical part of the classifier and there exists the horizontal vortex in the classifying chamber. The tangential velocity profile resembles a Rankine vortex inside the rotor cage. The vertical vortex intensity increases with increasing the inlet air velocity, while the rotor cage speed has limited effect on the control of gas pathlines in the classifying chamber. Horizontal turbo air classifiers are divided into four quadrants according to the air-inlet direction. For classifiers in quadrants I and III, a double-layer flow with opposite directions generates around the rotor cage which causes a secondary vortex. The secondary vortex is eliminated and the airflow becomes uniform in the classifier that belongs to quadrant Π or IV. The experimental results with fluidized catalytic cracking catalysts and fly ash demonstrate that cut sizes of this classifier decrease averagely by 5. μm and 2.2. μm respectively, and the classification accuracy increases by 7.5-10.3%. © 2017 The Society of Powder Technology Japan.

As a device with excellent potential, the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) has been developed to study the interfacial properties of liquids, such as adsorption/desorption kinetics, electrochemical reaction mechanisms and interfacial viscosity. In this research, the adsorption properties of cationic polyelectrolytes (poly(diallyl dimethylammonium chloride) and poly(allylamine hydrochloride)) on solid surfaces were observed using QCM. The results indicated that the response to adsorption was different with a change in polyelectrolyte solution concentration and that the frequency shift increased as the solution concentration increased. The adsorption of the polyelectrolyte also depends on the solid surfaces and solution pH values. Furthermore, the change in the molecular conformation of the polyelectrolyte molecules is the main factor that affects the adsorption properties and structures. © 2017 The Society of Polymer Science, Japan (SPSJ).

Two-phase closed thermosyphons (TPCTs) are simple, efficient, and low cost heat exchangers. They have been explored for use in the renewable energy resource utilization marker and low grade thermal energy heat recovery systems. Freon R134a has been extensively used in refrigeration systems and researched as a working fluid of TPCTs; however; it has high global warming potential and operating pressure. In this paper, an experimental investigation of the performance of TPCTs charged with eight working fluids: R134a, R601, R245fa, R600a, R1234ze, R152a, R245fa/R152a, and R601/R245fa have been carried out. The experimental results showed that R245fa/R152a offered the best performance in maximum heat transfer rate. R134a outperformed the other pure working fluids, while R600a and R1234ze had close performances to that of R134a. R245fa showed marginal improvement at higher operating temperatures. The predictions of six evaporation heat transfer coefficients (HTCs) correlations, including Imura, Shiraishi, Labuntsov, Kutateladze, Cooper, and Rohsenow were compared with the experimental results. In the five constant coefficients and powers correlations, the Shiraishi and Cooper correlations had superior accuracy. The coefficients and powers of the Rohsenow correlations fitted based on the experimental data, while they had the best accuracy. Nusselt and Hashimoto-Kaminaga correlations were chosen to predict the condensation HTCs. Both of them tend to over-predict the condensation HTCs in low heat fluxes while under-predicting in high heat fluxes. The experimental results had greater agreement with Hashimoto and Kaminaga correlations. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) cryogenic submerged pumps are important transmission devices in LNG terminals and filling stations. In this study, the impeller of a two-stage LNG submerged pump was designed by the quasi-3D hydraulic design method based on the S1 and S2 relative stream surfaces theory. In the design procedure, the finite element method (FEM) with a quadrilateral nine-node element was adopted for the S1 stream surfaces calculation, and the quasi-orthogonal method was used for the average S2 stream surface calculation. The flow field was obtained by the iterative computations of S1 and S2 stream surfaces. Given a reasonable velocity moment distribution along streamlines considered cavitation, the blade drawing was realized by iterating the camber lines and circulation equations on an average S2 stream surface. Moreover, a steady numerical simulation of the designed pump was conducted. The simulation result showed that the head of the designed pump was 260.15 m and the efficiency was 62.82% at the designed flow rate condition. The net positive suction head required (NPSHr) at the conditions with 0.9 Q0, 1.0 Q0 and 1.1 Q0 were, respectively, 1.69 m, 2.54 m and 3.12 m, which met the industrial needs. Furthermore, both the cavitation and hydraulic performance of an impeller designed by the method presented in this study were better than those of an impeller which was designed by the two-dimensional method. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

The CCHP (combined cooling, heating, and power) system, especially combined with the SOFC (solid oxide fuel cell), has great potential for improving energy utilization efficiency. Therefore an integrated SOFC-CCHP system, fueled by COG (coke oven gas) which contains large amount of hydrogen, has been designed and proposed in this paper. The flue gas exhausted from the HRSG (heat recovery steam generator) is used for heating and the latent heat of water exhausted from the ST (steam turbine) is used for cooling achieved by a single-effect lithium bromide absorption chiller. Based on the corresponding models, the evaluations of the system performance are carried out aided by Aspen Plus process simulator. The calculation results indicate that the electrical efficiency of the SOFC can reach over 60% while the total power efficiency and the overall system efficiency of SOFC-CCHP system are about 70% and 90% respectively. Furthermore, the effect of several operating parameters including fuel flow rate, hydrogen content of COG, fuel utilization factor and operating pressure are investigated and analyzed on the proposed system performance. This research lays a good foundation for the designing of the proposed integrated SOFC-CCHP system, which would be an efficient utilization option of COG. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

The separation efficiency of cyclones is closely related to the inlet velocity, and the maximum-efficiency inlet velocity (MEIV) maximizes the separation efficiency. In current separation models, particles centrifuged on the wall are considered captured, and their further motions are no longer considered. We propose that particles centrifuged on the wall impact the wall and then rebound. If the energy in these particles is sufficient, they will rebound into the upward gas flow. Within the fast upward gas flow, particles quickly move into the vortex finder and escape from the cyclone. A faster inlet velocity imparts more energy to the particles. Therefore, an excessive inlet velocity causes rebounded particles to escape, decreasing efficiency. The particle motion discussed above is the reason for the MEIV phenomenon, which is different from previous explanations. Newton's law and the hard sphere model were used to describe the particles' motion. Taken together, a new approach to forecast MEIV was established. The effects of various particle characteristics on the MEIV of cyclones, which have not been considered by previous models to forecast the MEIV, are taken into account in this new approach. We observed good consistency between the prediction of the new model and experimental data. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

In order to get further insight into the dynamic property of the vortex, pressure signals at various axial, radial and circumferential positions in a gas-solid cyclone were measured by multi-input dynamic pressure transducer. By adopting probability density function, standard deviation, and power spectral density methods, the characteristics of the pressure signals were analyzed and discussed. Experimental results show that there are two dominant frequencies (about 71 Hz and 179 Hz) of the pressure fluctuation in the gas flow: the former (about 71 Hz) is related to the quasi-forced vortex rotation; the latter (about 179 Hz) is related to the swing of the quasi-forced vortex core. The particle strands motion in the gas-solid flow reduces the dispersion of pressure fluctuation, mitigates the off-axis phenomenon of the core to some extent, and adds a dominant low frequency (0.31 Hz-0.86 Hz) which gets higher with the increase of inlet solids loading. The experimental results can provide insight into the pressure fluctuation in a gas-solid cyclone separator. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

A novel electricity-heating cogeneration system (EHCS) which is equipped with an absorption heat pump (AHP) system to recover waste heat from exhaust steam of the steam turbines in coal-fired thermal power plants is proposed to reduce heating energy consumption and improve the utilization of the fossil fuels in existing CHP (Combined Heat and Power) systems. According to the first and second thermodynamic law, the changes of the performance evaluation indicators are analyzed, and exergy analyses for key components of the system are carried out as well as changes of exergy indexes focusing on 135 MW direct air cooling units before and after modification. Compared with the conventional heating system, the output power increases by about 3.58 MW, gross coal consumption rate and total exergy loss respectively reduces by 11.50 g/kW h and 4.649 MW, while the total thermal and exergy efficiency increases by 1.26% and 1.45% in the EHCS when the heating load is 99,918 kJ at 75% THA condition. Meanwhile, the decrement of total exergy loss and increment of total exergy efficiency increase with the increasing of the heating load. The scheme cannot only bring great economic benefits but also save fossil resources, which has a promising market application potential. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

A new cogeneration system which integrates a solar-assisted absorption heat pump (SAAHP) into a coal-fired power plant for waste heat recovery of exhausted steam from a steam turbine is presented to improve utilization efficiency of fossil fuels. This study compares the performances of three cogeneration systems which differ in their driving heat source of AHP in the heating system. The following cogeneration systems are considered: conventional cogeneration system (CCS), cogeneration system with AHP driven by extracted steam (CSAES) and cogeneration system with AHP driven by solar (CSAS). Compared with the CCS and CSAES, output power respectively increases by about 11.43 and 6.48 MW; coal consumption rate reduces by 26.27 and 14.29 g/kWh in the CSAS with 11529 kJ heating capacity at 100% THA (Turbine heat acceptance) condition. The integral thermal and exergy efficiency of the CSAS are 58.32% and 36.26%. Meanwhile, reduced coal consumption rate and increased power both increase with increasing heating capacity. It is found that thermal efficiency and exergy efficiency for solar energy utilization both increase with the increasing load. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd
