Ansys Software Helps GEA Niro To Optimise Design

GEA Niro has selected engineering simulation software from Ansys to optimise equipment design and reduce development time and costs. GEA Niro provides drying equipment, technology and know-how to the dairy, food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The suite from Ansys enables customers to optimise designs throughout the product-development process, especially in the early stages when changes can be efficiently and cost-effectively implemented.

GEA Niro is applying engineering simulation as it develops equipment and processes for transforming liquids into powders, a major consideration in the dairy, food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Drying plants are becoming more important in processing safer and more profitable products. Optimising the drying process requires an in-depth understanding of complex flow and thermal-exchange phenomena, and Ansys software helps engineers to simulate real-world conditions in performing comprehensive analysis.

Simulation results can be used to minimise energy requirements without compromising product quality. GEA Niro chose Ansys as a strategic software partner because the product portfolio covers all GEA Niro's simulation needs, now and for the foreseeable future. 'We have used fluid dynamics simulations for two decades, continually working to perfect the analyses and to make the most accurate modelling predictions within our technologies,' said Thorvald Ullum, fluid mechanics manager, GEA Niro.

'For example, GEA Niro developed the Drynetics method as a way of improving the reliability of the simulation of the spray-drying process. 'Now we're expanding our simulation facilities, using Ansys software to decrease the simulation time and further improve the results in areas such as high-turbulence, particle-laden flows,' he added.
