- ... Internal mixing chamber twin-fluid nozzles can advantageously replace traditional Y type nozzles to atomize high viscosity fluids. This is the case of power plants consuming heavy crude oils, where the use of this type of nozzles allows to obtain the smallest possible droplets with reduced gas flow rates. This work, based on previous experiments and new additional results, analyzes the flow in a s ...
