This is a novel application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), in the vacuum De-zincing process. The complete modeling process would involve the solution of the following equations: a) Navier-Stokes Equations; b) The Energy Equation; c) The Solution of the Species Concentration. The aim of this research as a novel approach in vacuum Dezincing process has been to gain an understanding in terms of the actual complicated physics involved de-zincing process such, as phase change and solidification. The results in this paper have contributed to a better understanding of the vacuum De-zincing process, hence identifying parameters, which would aid the efficient recovery of the zinc from the molten metal bath.
