Description

In this project, an industrial Furnace has been simulated, and the simulation results have been investigated using ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

In this project, Ansys Fluent software stimulated an industrial Furnace numerically. The furnace simulated in this project is combusted with methane fuel to heat the Methane in the pipes so that the Methane can be moved more quickly and with less force.

By observing the results, it can be seen that the outlet temperature of methane pipes has increased compared to the inlet temperature. The fuel enters and is mixed with the air inside the furnace, and combustion occurs. Six burners are installed on the floor of the furnace.

The flame hits the pipes inside the furnace in the radiant section and causes heating of the liquid inside the pipe, Methane. Combustion gases are released from the chimney as burnt gases.

We designed the geometry of the present work by SolidWorks software (drawing pipes) and the rest of the geometry by Design Modeler software, which has the exact dimensions as the model in the attached catalog.

Purpose:

Furnaces are used in oil, gas, and petrochemical industries to provide heat for various processes over 400 c.

To move heavy mineral flood oil, it is often necessary to reduce the viscosity to facilitate this operation by heating the oil in the furnace. The purpose of this project is to increase the temperature of Methane.

Abstract:

In this project, ANSYS Fluent software stimulated an industrial Furnace numerically. The furnace simulated in this project is combusted with methane fuel to heat the Methane in the pipes so that the Methane can be moved more quickly and with less force. By observing the results, it can be seen that the outlet temperature of methane pipes has increased compared to the inlet temperature.

Introduction to Furnace Industrial Application:

Oil is one of the precious gifts that nature has given to humans. The impact of oil cannot be ignored in humanity’s economic, political, and social spheres. Oil as an essential element has contributed to economic development, employment, and peace.

Therefore, one of the major challenges in the oil industry is the displacement of it or its products in transmission lines, which is difficult to move in the pipeline due to the high viscosity. Therefore, by heating the desired fluid, the displacement in the tube is better due to the reduction of viscosity.

Furnaces, like other equipment, have an evolutionary course and with the advancement of engineering knowledge, their efficiency and safety have been increased day by day with new designs. Increasing the efficiency as much as possible, improving the safety, simplification, guidance, and the ability to use different fuels in the furnaces are among the intellectual preoccupations of the engineers in designing and manufacturing different types of furnaces.

How the Device Works:

The fuel enters and is mixed with the air inside the furnace, and combustion occurs. Six burners are installed on the floor of the furnace. The flame hits the pipes inside the furnace in the radiant section and causes heating of the liquid inside the pipe, Methane. Combustion gases are released from the chimney as burnt gases.

Furnace Simulation

We designed the geometry of the present work by SolidWorks software (drawing pipes) and the rest of the geometry by Design Modeler software, which has the exact dimensions as the model in the attached catalog. The meshing of this present model has been generated by ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh grid is structured, and the total cell number is more than 7800000.

FURNACE simulations are performed with a steady-state solver with the energy equation, and the k-ε model is Realizable as the turbulence model. In addition, species equations are active. The fluids used in this simulation are Methane and air for the continuous phase. Coupling of velocity and pressure equations is also performed using the SIMPLE algorithm by ANSYS Fluent software.

    The topic of furnace efficiency is fascinating, and I’m genuinely impressed by the simulation project! For a user considering this product, could you tell me what metric efficiencies were achieved, if discussed, or is it mainly focused on the temperature rise from inlet to outlet?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The product primarily showcases the temperature rise from the inlet to the outlet as an indicator of the furnace’s performance rather than delineating specific metrics of efficiency. Detailed temperature contours provided in the results facilitate understanding the effectiveness of the heat transfer process within the furnace.

    Can I simulate a similar furnace with a different fuel type, using the procedure described in this project, and what changes to the setup might be needed if I switch from methane to, say, propane?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Certainly! The methodology and procedure described in this project for methane can be adapted for simulating a furnace with propane fuel. You’ll need to adjust the material properties for propane fuel, update the combustion and species model parameters in ANSYS Fluent, and revalidate your boundary conditions to ensure accuracy. The core steps in geometry creation, meshing, and simulation setup would remain the same.

    The analysis of methane combustion in the furnace is fascinating. Could you please explain how the temperature distribution within the furnace was verified to be accurate?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      To ensure the accuracy of the temperature distribution within the furnace, we used several verification techniques. The simulation results were compared with empirical data and theoretical values when available. Also, mesh independence tests were performed to ensure that the number and distribution of computational cells are sufficient to capture the thermal gradients correctly. Additionally, the model was calibrated using temperature readings from specific locations within the furnace, where available, to match the physical process as closely as possible.

    I’ve always been intrigued by CFD analysis of complex systems. In this furnace simulation, how did the incorporation of different burners on the floor of the furnace impact the uniformity of heating and the methane movement inside the pipes?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the simulation, the presence of multiple burners installed on the furnace floor allows for a more even distribution of heat. This arrangement ensures that the flame directly hits the pipes in the radiant section, providing consistent heating of the liquid methane inside the pipes. As a result, the uniformity of the furnace’s heating process enhances the effectiveness of the methane movement by reducing its viscosity through the increase in temperature, evidenced by the significant rise in outlet temperatures compared to the inlet.
