Paper Abstract

The feasibility of optically detecting air and water bubbles flowing through the oil is presented. By scanning wavelengths it is possible to add functionalities by implementing a spectroscopy based chemical detection that can directly lead to chemical detection and imaging and/or chemical species tomography of flowing fluids. In this article, a halogen lamp (175 - 1000 W and centered at 1.2 mm) and an IR-array camera (8-12 μm, 31 x 32 pixels and 10 fps) is used to observe the three-phase flow involving oil, air and water.
