Parametric Study and Geometrical Optimization of Centrifugal Blower

7 pagesPublished: August 5, 2017

Abstract

Blower is used to deliver the air or gas with an appreciable rise in pressure against the flow resistance. It plays an important role in various industries for air-conditioning systems, furnaces and dust or fume extraction systems. The backward inclined blade centrifugal blower was considered for study and analysis. The parameters affecting performance were determined and important parameters were selected. For centrifugal blower, both impeller and casing parameters are considered for CFD analysis in ANSYS, where model was prepared in Creo2.0 parametric and CFD results were validated with the help of experimental results. For CFD analysis of models k- ɛ turbulence model was used. Then range of parameters was used for doing DoE by Taguchi’s method and detailed study of given blower was carried out. Models given by DoE were analyzed to get their performance and optimal model was found out which has 23.07% higher performance than current centrifugal blower.

Keyphrases: blade outlet angle, blower, Radial gap, Volute casing
