Abstract

A special type of a high pressure homogenizer valve was studied for the dispersive mixing of oil-in-water emulsions. Various hydrodynamic regimes and flow fields were identified using the commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software ANSYS and, for each regime the stable droplet sizes ...
