Simulation of flow in the flash smelting process

Technical Report:

Abstract

This is the first report of the publication series for the project SULA-10: `Reaction and flow dynamic modelling of suspension smelting technology`, for the research programme SULA (MELT) financed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Finland. In this report, background and aims of the project are summarised together with modelling procedure. The Outokumpu flash smelting process was first simulated on laboratory scale water and gas models which were then computed using PHOENICS-based software Easy Flow and CFD2000. Additionally, geometries and calculation grids of the flash smelting process units - concentrate burner, reaction shaft, settler, uptake, and waste-heat boiler - were created and cold gas flow simulations were carried out. Main results of the laboratory models and computational achievements are presented
