Electrostatic interaction of free EHD jets

Electrostatic interaction of free EHD jets Three spray systems with multiple nozzles arranged linearly, of different geometrical configurations were tested experimentally: (1) spray nozzles without induction electrodes facing a distant plate, (2) spray nozzles with two parallel bar induction electrodes, and (3) spray nozzles with individual ring induction electrodes. The systems were set to operate at the precession mode of spraying. In all the systems, except that of individual induction electrodes, the precession mode of spraying was first set at peripheral nozzles, and next, for higher voltages, at central nozzles. In the system with ring induction electrodes, the precession mode of spraying was generated for all nozzles at the same voltage level. The size and charge distributions of the droplets were measured for each spray system. The charge distribution of the droplets was measured with a ring induction probe, and it was compared with the charge distribution determined numerically from the size distribution of the droplets, based on the Rayleigh limit formula. It was shown that both these distributions correlate quite well. Free droplets suspended and moving irregularly within the centre of the charged spray plume were observed in the system with individual rings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals

Abstract

Three spray systems with multiple nozzles arranged linearly, of different geometrical configurations were tested experimentally: (1) spray nozzles without induction electrodes facing a distant plate, (2) spray nozzles with two parallel bar induction electrodes, and (3) spray nozzles with individual ring induction electrodes. The systems were set to operate at the precession mode of spraying. In all the systems, except that of individual induction electrodes, the precession mode of spraying was first set at peripheral nozzles, and next, for higher voltages, at central nozzles. In the system with ring induction electrodes, the precession mode of spraying was generated for all nozzles at the same voltage level. The size and charge distributions of the droplets were measured for each spray system. The charge distribution of the droplets was measured with a ring induction probe, and it was compared with the charge distribution determined numerically from the size distribution of the droplets, based on the Rayleigh limit formula. It was shown that both these distributions correlate quite well. Free droplets suspended and moving irregularly within the centre of the charged spray plume were observed in the system with individual rings.
