CFD Optimization of a Cooling Tower in a Cement Production Facility in the USA
The gas-liquid-flow in the water evaporation tower was reproduced with help of a CFD code. The analysis concluded in several measures to avoid deposits and blocking in the system such as foreseeing appropriate vanes, among other flow conditioning devices.
