Abstract

Using measured droplet size data for various oil-in-water systems, as well as fairly detailed statistics on the turbulent velocity field in a new type of mixing vessel with grid-type impellers, viscous and inertial breakup models developed in a preceding companion paper are tested. All evidence suggests that breakup in the new vessel is controlled by mean pressure fluctuations in the impeller region.
