Abstract
An experimental investigation was performed to study the influence of the bubble size on an effervescent atomization. Experiments were conducted in horizontal facility with a 25.4mm diameter feeding pipe using water and air as the working fluids that were sprayed through an effervescent nozzle. Water flow rates from 113 to 189 kg/min and air to liquid mass ratios from 1% to 4% were selected. High speed photographs, of the bubbles in the feeding conduit and of the resulting droplets on the spray, were taken to use the particle projected areas to estimate their sizes. A monotonic positive correlation was found between the bubble size and the droplet size, in a fairly narrow range of feed flow void fractions. A bubble size sensitivity parameter was defined. Knowledge of the droplet behaviour provides data to enhance the design and operating conditions of the atomization process and a means to control droplet size.
