Learn how PNR can effectively optimize nozzle performance with Computational Fluid Dynamics software

At PNR we have been working for a long time to be at the forefront in the production but also in the design and optimization of our products. For this reason, we have equipped ourselves with a software for computational fluid dynamics.

THERMO-FLUID-DYNAMIC SIMULATIONS

The Thermo-Fluid Dynamics simulation allows us to investigate and predict the trend of thermal and fluid dynamics variables. Specifically we can analyze:

  • Analysis of static and dynamic cooling;
  • Sizing systems and coverage analysis;
  • Temperature distribution and thermal analysis.

We have developed a dynamic proprietary thermal analysis model for the study of continuous cooling in extrusion and in the main metallurgical processes.

Thanks to the CFD software, we have obtained a dynamic simulation of the washing heads.

In detail, we can make:

  • Analysis of the actual coverage and the action of wall washing;
  • Simulation of viscous fluids / non-newtonians;
  • Prediction of actual rotational speed;
  • Analysis of fluid forces – moving walls.

OPTIMISATION OF PRODUCTS

This CFD software is a powerful research and development tool that allows us to test different solutions for the optimization of our products in a very short time compared to traditional prototyping.

In detail we can obtain:

  • Assistance with production;
  • Optimization of performance;
  • Tuning and analysis of the influence of geometric parameters;
  • Search for new solutions;
  • Reverse Engineering.
