Abstract

A high-temperature stainless-steel sphere was immersed into various salt solutions to investigate the film boiling behavior at vapor film collapse. The film boiling behavior around the sphere was observed with a digital video camera. Both surface temperature of the sphere and solid-liquid contact behavior were measured. Results of the experiment showed that salt additives enhanced condensation heat transfer, and the observed vapor film was thinner. Furthermore, the frequency of direct contact between the sphere surface and coolant increased. The quenching temperature increased with increased salt concentration, and was highly correlated with ion molar concentration, which represents the density of ions regardless of the type of salt.
