Liquid-Liquid Flows in Micro and Small Channels: Hydrodynamics and Pressure Drop
- 309 Downloads
In this chapter the hydrodynamic characteristics and the pressure drop of liquid-liquid flows in small circular channels are presented. Two liquid-liquid flow systems are considered for the experiments, i.e. ionic liquid-deionised water, and TBP/ionic liquid (30 % v/v)-nitric acid solutions. The channels tested were made either of glass or Teflon. Channel sizes varied in internal diameter from 0.2 to 2 mm.
