Abstract : The patent concerns a device for the rapid generation of massive quantities of gas-filled, neutrally buoyant bubbles. The device consists of a plurality of parallel struts each streamlined like an airfoil and containing a gas manifold and a bubble film material (BFM) manifold. Bubbles are pulled off the tips of the outer tubes by air flow, with the size of the bubbles governed principally by the velocity of the air flow.
