Hello All,

Is there any way to improve the sugar mill efficiency & productivity using CFD analysis? I know that CFD analysis can be done for evaporators, clarifiers, tube erosion, crystallization. But I dont know how it is going to improve the efficiency & productivity of a mill. Can anybody help?

Thanks & regards,

-Sanyo

CFD does not, in itself, improve the efficiency and productivity of anything. CFD is just a numerical experiment - you set up a condition and CFD gives you a result. It is up to the skill of the engineer driving the CFD to turn that CFD result into knowledge and that knowledge into a better plant design.

But I do not know whether that answers your question

Thanks Glenn.

Is there any idea to carry out such an experiment into the CFD?

Thanks & regards,

Sanyo

Hello,

I believe you could start by understanding the essential steps to set up a simulation in CFX.

For instance, drawing your model, generating the mesh, setting up the physical conditions and so on...

That's the beginning of the process!

Good luck

Thank you very much Felipe for your response.

I am familiar with CFD & had executed few projects too. What I want is the target equipment for analysis which could improve the efficiency or productivity of mill. I am not familiar with sugar mill processes. To understand the process & target the key equipment could require lot of time.

I dont think that much work is done for sugar mills. I am just checking if somebody had already achieved such improvement or at least know a way.

Thanks & regards,

Sanyo

What you can do is go to www.sciencedirect.com and search for some articles about that.

Like keywords mills + CFD or something that suits your purpose.
