Abstract

Experimental data are presented for the mass flow rate and quality of two-phase (air-water) discharge from a stratified region through two side branches (6.35 mm i.d.) with their parallel centrelines located in a vertical plane. These data correspond to different values of the interface level between the onset of gas entertainment at the upper branch to the onset of liquid entertainment at the lower branch for test-section pressures of 316 and 517 kPa, test-section-to-separators pressure difference ranging from 40 to 235 kPa, branch separating distance to diameter ratio ranging from 1.5 to 8 and different hydraulic resistance of the lines connecting the test section to the separators. Normalized plots are shown to be capable of absorbing the effects of some independent variables within the tested range of operating conditions.
