Symposium Energy Materials 2017: Energy and Environmental Issues in Materials Manufacturing and Processing
Presentation Title Approach for Pyrolysis Gas Release Modelling and its Potential for Enhanced Energy Efficiency of Aluminium Remelting Furnaces
Author(s) Henning Bruns, Antje Rückert, Herbert Pfeifer
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Henning Bruns
Abstract Scope Within the scope of the AMAP research cluster in Aachen the aluminium recycling process in melting furnaces is investigated with regard to resource and energy efficiency. When organic-contaminated material is charged into the furnace, pyrolysis gases are released as soon as the material temperature exceeds 350 °C (662 °F). Those gases mainly consist of hydrocarbons, hydrogen and small fractions of other species. Thus, they are an energetic contribution to the furnace atmosphere and should be considered as such by the burner control unit in order to reduce the amount of unburnt fuel in the off-gas as well as primary energy consumption. This is achieved by post-processing data from lab-scale pyrolysis experiments in MatLab and bringing it into a format suitable for CFD and maybe also online process control tools. This presentation will give an insight into the modelling approach and the model application in ANSYS Fluent CFD.
