Effect of the heating-surface material on the boiling curve of liquids

Gases and Liquids


The curve of saturated pool boiling of water at atmospheric pressure is experimentally studied for various heating surface materials. The heat-generating elements are made of copper (65, 100 μm in diameter), tungsten (90 μm in diameter), and nichrome (100 and 150 μm in diameter) wires. The time to burnout of a heating element is not always correspondent to the boiling crisis. At a controlled heat load, the quantity of heat transferred from a metallic surface to boiling water increases with the heat load.
