 Abstract
Waste-to-energy facilities including incinerators are known as an efficient method to reduce wastes. In waste-to-energy facilities, more efficient cooling system is still needed for grates as the energy density of waste increased. For better cooling performance with the water-cooled grates, optimal design of cooling water pathways is highly beneficial. We performed numerical investigation on fluid flow and residence time of cooling water with change of the geometry of the cooling water pathway. With addition of round shaped guide vanes in the water pathway, the maximum residence time of flow is reduced(from 4.3 sec. to 2.4 sec.), but there is no significant difference in pressure drop between inlet and outlet, and average residence time at the outlet. Furthermore the flow stagnation region moves to the outlet, as the position of the round shaped guide vanes is located to the neck point of pathways.
