Abstract:

Cold flow tests were conducted on a four-nozzle gas eductor system to evaluate the feasibility of reducing mixing stack lengths by the application of angled primary flow nozzles. Three short mixing stacks with length to diameter ratios of 1.75, 1.5, and 1.25 were tested using a set of straight nozzles and a series of angled nozzles having tilt angles of 10, 15, 20 and 22.5 degrees. The nozzles were constructed with an area of primary flow to area of mixing stack ratio of 2.5. Pumping coefficients, mixing stack pressure distributions, flow changes, exit velocity profiles, and back pressures were used to evaluate the various mixing stack length and angled nozzle combinations.
