Optimization of Kanthal Superthal High Power Reflectors

Abstract [en]

Kanthal AB, the market's foremost supplier of heating solutions to industry, often creates optimum solutions for each customer. One of their solutions is the High Power Reflector, which consists of a vacuum formed ceramic fibre 'hood' with an integrated Kanthal Super ceramic heating element. The performed project is to optimize heat performance of the High Power Reflector with respect to output power and temperature distribution. The task was solved using heat transfer simulations in with reflector different models. The simulation in COMSOL software environment in two-dimensional was performed to find the best reflector shape. Authors have simulated five different types of proposed reflectors. The temperature distributions were simulated as well as temperature profile and curve in 20 cm on the top of element until 50 cm have obtained, in this way with respect to higher out power and uniform temperature distribution, was found the optimized model of reflector and hood for using in power heating system. For verification used the three-dimensional simulation. It is shown that the difference is less than of 3%. Results have a satisfied fit with furnace average temperature. In this research Kanthal AB handbook has been our reference for comparison. In future work to verify the simulations, tests can be performed at Kanthal's facilities.
