Thermal Performance Analysis of a Steam Pipe Used in Activated Carbon Industry – A Case Study
High-temperature Steam Pipes are used in Rotary Kilns to activate charcoal in the activated carbon industry. In the activated carbon business, high-temperature steam is utilised in rotary kilns to activate charcoal. A steam pipe is put into the kiln under a high-temperature conditional environment. The activation phase is centred on excessive heat Steam, which is constantly and consistently spread across the activation region. The goal of this study is to investigate at the steam pipe fractures that occur during the procedure in the heat-affected zone. The finite element analysis approach was used to examine two types of pipes: those with straight holes and those without. Total deformation, equal stress, and temperature were investigated in order to determine the cause of failure. The probability distributions were calculated. During the procedure, a pipe’s maximum holding time will create cracks, lowering the pipe’s lifespan. Periodic pipe cleaning and clinker removal will extend the life of the pipe while ensuring that the production of the respective product is not harmed.
