A study was made on a single-stage, submerged orifice, experimental flashing unit operating on water. The operating parameters varied were the flow rate (from 4. 7 to 8. 16 m**3/h m of chamber width), the liquid inlet temperature (from 98 to 102 degree C), the liquid level in the flashing chamber (from 28 to 40 cm), and the flashing range (from 2. 5 to 7. 5 degree C). The design parameters were the absence or presence of a baffle and a wire mesh. Correlations and curves were obtained showing the effect of varying these parameters on the thermodynamic efficiency of the flashing process, and the various interactions and their effects are discussed in detail. It is concluded that, within the experimental range used, the most pronounced interaction is that between the flow rate, flashing range, and wire mesh.
