This article provides a fluid flow through parallel plate distributor of a number of small holes
Design methods. The design is based on fluid flow through the theory of piercing
With the experimental data and the assumption of two trusted to carry out the. In sharp
Kong should be based on the adsorption layer, the distribution in the cross section to locate and the total flow
Is divided into equal sub-flows and the flow through the orifice of each hole 2
Kinds of cases, the thickness of a thin orifice plate flow distribution can enable the capacity of
Evenly enough to work device cross-sectional area.
In with desiccant, adsorbent and other equipment, operation, fluid
The correct distribution is an important factor. Porous plate is often used to ensure that
Fluid flows through the bed in the device cross section of the flow uniformity. Orifice
Distributor shown in Figure 1.
A principle of piercing the application of flow
Fluid flow through a sharp contraction in holes being accelerated due to its kinetic energy
(Velocity μ) increases, the pressure can be (p v) reduced. Fluid flow

Section to section down to an orifice on the A1 at the A0, later
Degree reduced to shrink veins Office A2 (shown in Figure 2). Shrink veins at the surface
Product and the relationship between orifice area contraction coefficient of CC can be expressed as, CC
= A2 / A0. If the pressure is within a short distance in the upstream flow disturbance is not
Dynamic Office (section A1) and the narrowest point in the mobile section (section A2),
Then the application of energy and material equation was:

This type shall be Bernoulli's equation. Fluid flow of water in the same baseline
Plane (z = 0), ascended the throne can be equal to zero. If the fluid flow did not produce
Health and friction, they do not do work on the surrounding environment, and even if w1, and F for the
Zero, with the flow coefficient C into account the friction loss on the plate, as well as CC,
φ1 and φ2 (speed factor) equivalent, and the vessel cross-sectional area A1
A0, obtained after finishing incompressible fluid through the hole board, sharp
Hole Flow Q [1, 2, 3]:
Q = CA0
ρ (1)
Where: A0 --- holes flow through the cross section area, m2;
C --- flow coefficient;
Δp --- fluid the pressure drop through the hole, kgf / m2;
ρ --- Fluid Density, kg / m3;
g --- gravitational acceleration, mPs2.
This has been a simple and practical calculation of flow formula,
However, coefficient C is not a simple function, it is with the orifice
On the Reynolds number is related as shown in Figure 3 [1]. In the Reynolds number Re>
104, preferable 016 ~ 0161 as a small hole C-value.

Compressible fluid flow must be introduced for the expansion of correction factors,
Required under Δp / p to find out the correction factor (with plans to be investigated).
Two equal distribution of
Envisages that the flow through the distribution of the flow of holes in each board are equal, must be
To be forced to rearrange the fluid itself, so that each hole of the flow near the
Equal. If too much fluid resistance through pores become greater than the fluid
Rearrangement of resistance, they are required to re-arrangement of fluid may occur, thus
To obtain equal distribution of results. If the resistance through the distributor can be neglected
Excluding a little, then the fluid can not be unaffected forced rearrangement, it is by every little
Would be difficult to allocate the flow holes, because of least resistance through the distribution plate of
Channels are not just equal distribution of means.
Tests showed that the distribution area of a circle arranged according to concentric circles [4],
Concentric distance equivalent to pitch in each circle on the pitch are also similar
And so on, or slightly larger than the radial pitch. With concentric circles of equal spacing
10 laps, for example the area of distribution as the arrangement of holes criteria, shown in Figure 4

3 2 assumes that
(1) assuming current weight, eliminate resistance does not exceed the total flow from the entrance guide
Tube into the container by the sudden expansion (Figure 5) resulting
The friction loss. On this assumption, rearrangement of the resistance is defined as
Is equal to the total flow into the container when the loss of local resistance. Gas into
The container should not take over the gas nozzle into the container directly from the adsorption
Agent layer, should be made with air holes drilled through the wall or open a gate seam spray
Trachea (some things around the screen made for the cartridge), also can be used bubble
Cover to protect. Import of these gases, the resistance should be equal to the total rearrangement
Traffic flow through the perforation of full-length jet ring friction loss. Local resistance loss
Loss caused by pressure changes, from the familiar formula:
Δp = Σζ
Where: w1 --- to take over an average speed over-current cross-section, mPs;
Σζ --- and the local resistance coefficient;
Σζ = (1 --
) 2
A1, A2 --- import over and over-current section of the container surface
The plot, m2.
(2) assuming ratio: defined as the flow distribution device flows through the hole resistance
Resistance force for the rearrangement of 100 times, that is, Δp0 = 100Δp, is sufficient
To ensure equal fluid flow through each hole. This ratio was set for the design of
The minimum ratio, and for most cases, because the resistance of a rearrangement
As much. The smaller the ratio will reduce the possibility of access to the same traffic
Sex. But when the pressure drop does not allow such a high, it can be used
To achieve the highest value.
