To support the broader development of isothermal compressor technology for natural gas systems, an experimental system has been designed and constructed to determine void fraction of a gas over time. The goal of this project was to determine how much time it takes for a gas, already statured in a working fluid, to separate from the working fluid. The result is a pressure vessel paired with a data acquisition system that could operate at a maximum of 3600 psi. A medium and high pressure system were designed, and the medium pressure system has been tested using visual methods.
