NUMERICAL SIMULATION AND TEST OF HOT AIR FAN
The value of high moisture content crops is higher and the planting area is wider. However, in the harvest process, due to the high moisture content, the cleaning loss is greater. In order to reduce the adhesion between the crop extraction mixture and improve the cleaning performance, a method of hot air cleaning was proposed. By using the fan design theory and thermodynamics, the prototype design of the hot air fan was completed. Through orthogonal test, the most suitable parameter combination is 1445r/min fan speed and 85℃ air inlet temperature. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was used to observe the air velocity and air temperature of the outlet under the optimal combination of parameters to check whether it meets the requirements of hot air cleaning. The reliability of numerical simulation was tested by bench test. Finally, a field experiment was carried out with the hot air fan to observe the difference between the cleaning effect and the fan under the optimal parameter combination, and compare the cleaning loss rate.
