Flow structures and their impact on single and dual inlets hydrocyclone performance for oil–water separation

With many of today’s oil wells located offshore, the production of high volumes of water compared to oil poses major challenges to oil operators. The use of liquid–liquid hydrocyclone (LLHC) is one effective way to arrest these uphill problems of produced water. However, the nature of fluid flow within the LLHC device is very vital to the separation process and performance. This...

Flow control in s-shaped air intake diffuser of gas turbine using proposed energy promoters

This paper presents an experimental and numerical investigation of the flow control in an air intake S-shaped diffuser with and without energy promoters. The S-shaped diffuser had an area ratio 3.1and turning angle of 45°/45°. The proposed energy promoter was named as stream line sheet energy promoter. Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation was performed through commercial ANSYS...
