Gas-Liquid Flow through Coils
Experimental investigations have been carried out to evaluate the two-phase pressure drop and the holdup for flow through helical coils. The coils were made of thick wall transparent PVC tube of diameter 0.01 m and 0.013 m. 24 coils were made at different coil diameter and different helix angles (0° to 12°). Three different liquids were used for the experimental studies and air was the gas. Empirical correlations have been developed to predict the two-phase friction factor and the liquid holdup as functions of the physical and dynamic variables of the system. Statistical analyses of the correlations suggest that they are of acceptable accuracy.
