Abstract : An experimental determination was made of the quality of fuel (solar oil) atomization by large capacity (1500 kg/hr) swirl injectors. In the experiments, the pressure before the nozzle was varied from 5 to 60 kg/sq cm, kinematic viscosity of the fuel from 0.04 to 0.4 sq cm/sec, fuel flow rate from 123 to 1322 kg/hr, and Reynolds number from 1640 to 18,280. The quality of atomization was determined by measuring the droplet imprints on a plate coated with solar oil soot 0.5 to 0.7 mm thick. The obtained results are shown. The formula d sub k/d sub e = 18.3/Re to the 0.59 power can be used for calculating the quality of fuel atomization.
