Influence of the Design of the Upper Vortex Swirl on Hydrodynamics of a Vortex Dust Collector

The article presents the results of computer simulation of the gas dynamics of a vortex dust collector and a comparison of the results with experimental data, as well as the results of numerical experiments conducted for various designs of the upper blade vortex swirl of a vortex dust collector. It shows that in the upper axial-blade swirler it is advisable to install five blades, which will ensure the highest possible dust cleaning efficiency without increasing energy consumption.
