Paper Abstract

It has been recognized that the steam accumulator plays an important role as one of thermal energy storage system and was used at hospitals, hotels and food factories in recent years. Experiments have been carried out to investigate direct contact condensation of saturated steam into a quiescent subcooled water environment. They were performed for subcooling from 20 - 70°C, for atmospheric pressure, and for various type of orifice ( single-orifice, multi-orifice and porous-disc-orifice ). The phenomena were observed by means of high speed shadowgraphy using a rotating prism camera. The phenomena were also visualized by techniques of liquid crystal using a still camera. The effect of bulk temperature in a water tank and the difference among a single-orifice, a multi-orifice and porous-disc-orifice were discussed and good predictive results for the visualization of thermal flow in a quiescent subcooled water environment were obtained.
