Abstract:

This article illustrates the use of numerical simulation models for evaluating the performance of a moving pellet cooler. A finite-volume method is employed in developing a steady state, two-dimensional numerical model for a double-deck conveyor cooler. Using this numerical model, variations in the product moisture content and temperature along the length and across the height of the product beds are predicted. Similarly, the resulting variations in the temperature and relative humidity of the cooling air are predicted in the entire two-dimensional domain of a cooler.
