Abstract

Numerical and experimental investigation of top submerged gas injection system Y.S. Morsi, W. Yang, D. Achim, A. Acquadro Modeling and Process Analysis Group School of Engineering and Science Swinburne University of Technology, Australia Abstract The injection of gas into a liquid bath has been widely practiced in the metallurgical industry for smelting and refining operations and has been successfully used for increasing mixing and minimizing temperature and composition inhomogenities. However, due to the complexity of the flow structure involved in the gas injection system, together with the limitation of most measurement techniques, a complete understanding of the hydrodynamics of the gas injection process is lacking. In this paper Ausmelt top submerged lancing system was investigated experimentally and numerically. The fluid flow phenomena resulted from the swirl and non-swirl top injection into a liquid bath was experimentally inve
