Paper Abstract

An advanced nozzle, also known as ejector nozzle, suitable for a 500 W class COIL employing an active medium flow of nearly 12 gm/s has been developed and used instead of conventional slit nozzle. The nozzle has been tested in both cold as well as hot run conditions of COIL achieving a typical cavity pressure of nearly 10 torr, pitot pressure of ~ 85 torr and a cavity Mach number of ~2.5. The present study details the gas dynamic aspects and detailed numerical studies of this ejector nozzle and highlights its potential as a COIL pressure recovery device. This nozzle in conjunction with a diffuser is capable of achieving pressure recovery of ~ 60 torr, equivalent to the much cumbersome first stage of the pressure recovery system used in case of conventional slit nozzle based system. . Thus use of this nozzle in place of conventional slit nozzle can achieve the atmospheric discharge using single stage ejector system thereby making the pressure recovery system quite compact.
