	  abstract     = {The purpose of this work is fast design optimization of
the seal chamber. The study includes the mass transfer between lower
and upper chamber on seal chamber for hot water application pumps.
The use of Fluent 12.1 commercial code made it possible to capture
complex flow with heat-mass transfer, radiation, Tailor instability,
and buoyancy effect. Realizable k-epsilon model was used for
turbulence modeling. Radiation heat losses were taken into account.
The temperature distribution at seal region is predicted with respect
to heat addition.
Results show the possibilities of the model simplifications by
excluding the water domain in low chamber from calculations. CFD
simulations permit to improve seal chamber design to meet target
water temperature around the seal. This study can be used for the
analysis of different seal chamber configurations.},
