Bubble characterization and gas–liquid interfacial area in two phase gas–liquid system in bubble column at low Reynolds number and high temperature and pressure
Bubbles hydrodynamic in gas-liquid contactor, including bubble size distribution, bubble size and gas-liquid interfacial area, was evaluated as a function of superficial gas velocity, superficial liquid velocity, temperature, pressure and different gases (N-2 and He) and liquids (water and ethanol/water mixture) phases. The results showed that with the increase of superficial gas velocity, the bubble size distribution shifted from smaller- to larger-size bubble and the Sauter mean diameter, the gas holdup and the interfacial area generally increased due to the increase of coalescence. The effect of superficial liquid velocity on bubble characteristics was not significant. Pressure and temperature showed slight influence on gas holdup and interfacial area. The bubble characteristics were not significantly influenced by the type of gas phase, but mainly affected by the liquid composition. Correlations to predict Sauter mean bubble diameter and the gas holdup are developed using Kanaris correlation and in good agreement with experimental results.
