Study of high-pressure air curtain and combined dedusting of gas water spray in multilevel ore pass based on CFD-DEM
In order to solve the problem of dust pollution caused by ore unloading in ore pass, this paper, taking Li Lou Mining as a case study, conducted the wind speed variation law in the fluid domain and the impact of the collision between the ore in the unloading process on the fluid to determine the key dust control point based on the CFD-DEM coupling software. By Fluent software, the air curtain dust-proof efficiency under the action of unloading airflow is analyzed, and the relationship between the dust-control wind speed and the impinging airflow is known. And an experimental model of gas water spray is established to analyze the effect of spray dust removal. By analyzing the impact airflow and dust migration caused by ore unloading and the effect of air curtain dust control through numerical simulation, it can be seen that when the ore discharging quantity M-o = 4000 kg, the dust production is mainly concentrated in the fourth middle section. By high-pressure air shield assisting dust removal, dust diffusion can be better controlled when the ratio of impact wind speed of ore pass wellhead (denoted as lambda) to high-pressure air curtain wind speed (denoted as zeta) is at least 1: 8. When the dust removal effect is optimal, the ratio delta of the water supply amount q(l) and the gas supply amount Q(g) is determined by the gas water spray dust control experimental platform.
