Spatial filter velocimetry (SFV) based on spatial filtering of time-series particle images proposed by Hosokawa and Tomiyama is applied to a bubble column to examine its applicability to bubble velocity measurement. The edge detection process is added in the SFV processing to reduce the size of image pattern and to obtain accurate velocity data. It is demonstrated that SFV is able to measure the bubble velocity in various spatial scales with the same accuracy as PTV. The measured mean bubble velocity does not depend on the interrogation size in the measurements. To the contrary, the standard deviation of measured bubble velocity becomes higher as the interrogation size decreases due to the superposition of interfacial wave velocity on the measured velocity. Simultaneous measurement of bubble and liquid velocities is also carried out for a planar bubble plume. The results clearly show that SFV can measure bubble and liquid velocities simultaneously.
