In view of the influence of tuyere layout change on velocity field in oxy-coal combustor-melter-separator furnace, three-dimensional numerical simulation method was used to compare the distribution of velocity field in the furnace under different tuyere layout. The purpose is to explore the influence of the velocity distribution on the molten pool flow in the process of multi-tuyere injection. It is shown that the maximum velocity of the upper and lower tuyeres is 60 m/s and 50 m/s. And the change of tuyere has a significant effect on the velocity distribution in the molten pool, and the sudden change of velocity near the tuyere will trigger a certain scale of gyratory zone. In addition, the change of tuyere arrangement will result in the concentration of velocity distribution in the molten pool and the increase of flow dead zone, while the change of tuyere spacing will not only promote the increase of flow dead zone, but also reduce the velocity distribution area.
Key words: oxy-coal combustor-melter-separator furnace / tuyere / velocity streamline / flow dead zone / numerical simulation
