A series of numerical simulation about gas-solid erosion for feed type tee have been taken out. The gas-solid two phase flow was formed in the tee with the solid particles coming from the top of the tee pipes and air blowing from the left side. Tee pipes erosion situation was simulated by DPM model in Fluent software. The serious erosion location in the tee pipes was analyzed with different speeds of solid and air. The reasonable distribution method of the particle velocity and gas velocity was put forward and the particles were remained in the intermediate position of the pipes. So the collision with the wall was reduced, and the pipeline erosion rate was slowed down, in addition, the service life of pipes was prolonged.
