An experimental investigation is conducted to determine the effect of liquid viscosity and density, nozzle diameter, and flow velocity on the break-up length and spreading angle of liquid sheets formed by splash plate nozzles. Various mixtures of corn syrup and water were used to obtain viscosities in the range of 1 – 170 mPa s . Four different splash plate nozzle diameters of 0.5 mm, 0.75 mm, 1 mm, and 2 mm, with a constant plate angle of 55 deg were tested. The liquid sheet angles and the break-up lengths were measured at various operating conditions. An empirical correlation for the sheet spreading angle and a semi-empirical correlation for the sheet break-up lengths are developed.
