Blast Furnace Air Pre-Heater Gets a Thermal Boost

Engineers use CFD to improve heat exchanger performance in iron production. Better design understanding using numerical simulations indentified reduced heat transfer areas. Baffles were introduced and evaluated with CFD resulting in new guidelines for design of the blast furnace.
