  • Enhancement of microbubble generation in a pressurized dissolution process by packing the nozzle with porous ceramics

    The pressurized dissolution method is often used for microbubble generation. However, the main disadvantage of this method is that a large amount of energy (more than 0.3 MPa) is required to generate many microbubbles, each of which have a diameter of several dozen μm. To overcome this problem, we investigated the effectiveness of porous ceramic when used as the packing material in the ...
