Droplet size measurements have been performed in high (5%-30%) dispersed phase fraction immiscible liquid-liquid systems in stirred tanks agitated with a variety of impellers, using an in-situ video probe.
Droplet size (and size distribution) data are presented both at steady state and while the droplet size is changing following a step change (up or down) in the impeller speed.
The relative kinetics of the break-up and coalescence processes are discussed.
This work has been performed under the Fluid Mixing Processes (FMP) consortium.
