Press release

Special tools for flow analyses (CFD) in filtration applications

DHCAE Tools develops special tools for flow analyses (CFD) in filtration applications. By optimising a filter system through CFD analyses, the utilisation of the installed filter area is optimised, operating costs are reduced, and the operating life is increased. In addition, the system is optimised in advance to guarantee stable operation and to avoid high costs due to system failures or plant downtimes.

The simulation tools have now been extensively expanded in order to efficiently reproduce and specifically optimise the flow of geometrically complex multi-filter systems. The interactions that occur during filter loading due to a higher local resistance and the associated constant relocation of the continuous flow are taken into account in an iterative approach. In this way, a particularly accurate modelling of the filter loading is realised over the entire operating time until cleaning. In the model extension, different damage models for the filters were also integrated to evaluate not only the particle deposits, but additionally the impact of large and fast particles on the filter and the resulting risk of damage. Components at risk can now be identified, and optimisations of the filter system can be numerically verified before the actual construction.

CFD modelling tool for multiple filter systems on the macro level

U. Heck*, M. Becker, DHCAE Tools GmbH, Germany

Conference Session: G11 - Modelling and Simulation - 2023-02-15 - 16:45

In many systems, multiple filter elements are used to increase the filter area. Typical examples are dust filter plants with hundreds of single filter bags or cartridge filter plants with several filter elements. The crucial factor for an efficient use of the installed filter area is a uniform loading of the filter area. However, this cannot always be achieved on the upstream side, especially if the filter system has to be individually adapted to the constructional conditions. If the filters are not loaded evenly, this can easily lead to increased operating costs due to high pressure loss, frequent cleaning, damage to the filters and thus shorter service lifetimes of the filter system.

The contribution presents a simulation tool based on flow simulations (CFD) for filtration plants. The simulation tool is based on the open-source CFD toolbox OpenFOAM. In the modelling approach an Euler-Lagrangian formulation for particle transport and a porous media representation for the filters are used. The interactions of local loading on the filter segment, the local resistance increase due to particle deposition and the resulting shift of the continuous flow are considered in an iterative approach.

This modelling approach has been extensively extended with regard to multiple filter systems in order to represent these systems efficiently....
