An experimental study of the process of bubble detachment from a single capillary was performed. Glycerin was used as a test liquid. To study the effect of physical properties of liquid on the process of bubble formation the experiments were conducted at different temperatures. The dependencies of mean bubble diameter on gas flow rate, liquid temperature and liquid velocity along with the size of capillary are presented. The data on the most typical regimes of bubbly mixture formation are obtained. The bubble coalescence near the capillary is shown to be the process which determines the shape of bubble size distribution in the flow.
