This study investigates the influence of two surfactants –a non-ionic (Tween20) and a zwitterionic (Cocoamidopropyl Betaine) – upon the gas-liquid hydrodynamics in a bubble column. These kinds of substances can have an important influence upon the gas-liquid hydrodynamics, specifically on the bubble size and gas hold-up. Bubble diameters were measured photographically in a bubble column, which was operating in the homogeneous regime with air and aqueous surfactant solutions. The bubble size and… CONTINUE READING
