Abstract : The study examines the emulsification characteristics of two 10 gpm pumps (a rotary vane, positive displacement pump and a centrifugal pump) under various conditions of oil feed and discharge pressures. A limited parametric investigation of emulsion formation under controlled ultrasonic energy inputs was also carried out to complement the results obtained from the pump emulsification tests.
