    V. W. Bhatkara,*, Anirban Surb,*

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.17, pp. 1-5, 2021, DOI:10.5098/hmt.17.12

    Abstract A jet pump or an ejector uses primary fluid flow as motive fluid to entrained secondary fluid. In this paper, the main intention is to find suction flow rate, primary flow rate, secondary flow rate, loss factors and ejector efficiency for an applied pressure. The values of the different loss factors estimated are primary nozzle loss factor (Kp)=0.06, suction loss factor (Ks)=0.04-0.1, mixing loss factor (Km)=0.07-0.1 and diffuser loss factor (Kd)=0.0289. It is found that with the increase in pressure across the ejector, efficiency increases with increase in flow ratio and decrease in pressure ratio. More >

    Experimental Analysis of the Flow Characteristics of an Adjustable Critical-Flow Venturi Nozzle

    Chun Ye1,2,3, Jingjing Gao1,2,3, Zhihui Wang1,2,3, Weibiao Zheng1,2,3, Yibei Wang2,4, Xingkai Zhang1,2,3,*, Ming Liu5

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.3, pp. 755-766, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.021868

    Abstract The response of an adjustable critical-flow Venturi nozzle is investigated through a set indoor experiments aimed to determine the related critical flow rate, critical pressure ratio, and discharge coefficient. The effect of a variation in the cone displacement and liquid content on the critical flow characteristics is examined in detail and it is shown that the former can be used to effectively adjust the critical flow rate. The critical pressure ratio of the considered nozzle is above 0.85, and the critical flow control deviation of the gas flow is within ±3%. Liquid flow can reduce More >

    Effect of Refrigerant on the Performance of a C3/MRC Liquefaction Process

    Xiao Wu*, Zhaoting Wang, Longfei Dong, Yanping Xin, Tianshu Yu

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.1, pp. 25-36, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.020953

    Abstract The Mixed Refrigerant (MR) component is an important factor influencing the performances of natural gas liquefaction processes. However, there is a lack of systematic research about the utilization of propane pre-cooled (C3/MRC). In this paper, this mixed refrigerant cycle liquefaction process is simulated using the HYSYS software and the main influential parameters involved in the process are varied to analyze their influence on the liquefaction rate and power consumption. The results show that an effective way for lowering the power consumption of the compressor consists of reducing the flow through the compressor through optimization of More >

    Experimental Analysis of the Performances of Unit Refrigeration Systems Based on Parallel Compressors with Consideration of the Volumetric and Isentropic Efficiency

    Daoming Shen1,2,*, Chao Gui1, Jinhong Xia1, Songtao Xue2,3

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 489-500, 2020, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2020.08969

    Abstract The performances of a refrigeration unit relying on compressors working in parallel have been investigated considering the influence of the compressor volumetric efficiency and isentropic efficiency on the compression ratio. Moreover, the following influential factors have been taken into account: evaporation temperature, condensation temperature and compressor suction-exhaust pressure ratio for different opening conditions of the compressor. The following quantities have been selected as the unit performance measurement indicators: refrigeration capacity, energy efficiency ratio (COP), compressor power consumption, and refrigerant flow rate. The experimental results indicate that the system refrigeration capacity and COP decrease with a More >
