Abstract

An experimental study of three immiscible liquid mixtures on a horizontal heated plate is presented. The lower liquid was in film boiling. The pairs of liquids included water with both heavier and lighter organic liquids. The heat transfer rate was controlled by the properties of the lower liquid. The upper liquid reduced the boiling temperature, resulting in subcooled boiling of the lower liquid. This caused greater heat transfer rates than for the lower liquid alone.
