Abstract

A study was made on a single stage experimental flashing unit using a submerged orifice, discussed in a previous paper1. The same operating parameters mentioned therewith, namely, the liquid flow rate (4.7-8.16 m3/ hr.m of chamber length), the liquid inlet temperature (98-102°c), the liquid level in the flashing chamber (40-28cm) and the flashing range (7.5-2.5°c) were varied, however, using a wire mesh this time rather than a baffle. Fresh water was used as the operating liquid. A correlation and curves were obtained showing the effect of varying these parameters on the thermodynamic efficiency of the flashing process. A comparison between the results obtained here and the previous ones obtained with a baffle was made. It is concluded that, within the experimental range used, the use of the wire mesh yields higher efficiencies than the baffle.
