This article describes the influence of various design modifications of the ammonia oxidation reactor operating in nitric acid plant TKIV in Kędzierzyn-Koźle on flow distribution of an air-ammonia mixture. The CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations of turbulent flow were carried out with SST k-ω turbulence model to close the system of RANS (Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes) equations. The simulation results show that the properly selected perforated plate screen and the conical diffuser

It was proved experimentally achieving uniform temperature of nitrous gases in different locations under the catalytic gauzes and high efficiency of ammonia oxidation and nitrous oxide decomposition
