The minimum film boiling temperature (TMFB) separates the unstable transition boiling region, where the liquid can contact the heated surface, and the post-CHF regime, where vapor can prevent the liquid from contacting the heated wall. This paper presents a review of minimum film boiling temperature correlations and describes a new technique to measure TMFB. The experiment proposed was simulated by TRACE and the same behavior was observed experimentally.
