Question Mixing of Oil in a closed Processor

rohitsuresh26 is on a distinguished road

I am modeling a Processor containing 2 heating elements - one on top and one at the bottom. Physically, the processor is very similar to an electric water heater.

I'm not getting proper temperature profiles in my result.

I'm using a 2D flow.

Density-based Solver

Models > Multi-phase, Energy, Viscous (K-epsilon), Species (Volumetric)

Boundary condition > top and bottom wall at 333.15 K and side 2 walls are adiabatic i.e. at 0 heat flux.

Initial conditions > 295.15 K

Time step size = 0.5

No. of Time Steps = 500

Max Iterations = 20

Please Advise if I am doing it right or if I need to change something.
