Paper Abstract

The general scalability of jet generators may be limited due to the inevitable breakup of the thin liquid jets. The fluid mechanic theory of liquid jets is reviewed. An experiment was set up to simulate jets of basic hydrogen peroxide and measure their velocity and breakup lengths as a function of the orifice diameter and length, and of the viscosity of the liquid. The experimental setup and its future extensions are described. The jets were run with atmospheric pressure into a chamber at low pressure. The results are compared to predictions from the simple theory and extrapolated to driving pressures of 10 bar.
