Air water two phase flow experiment was conducted to examine the basic flow characteristics of a centrifugal gas liquid separator. Vertical transparent test section, which is 4 m in height, was used to imitate the scale of a BWR separator. Flow rate conditions of gas and liquid were fixed at 0.1 m3/s and 0.033 m3/s, respectively. Radial distributions of two-phase flow characteristics, such as void fraction, gas velocity and bubble chord length, were measured by traversing dual optical void… Expand
