Critical heat flux during forced convection boiling on an open heated disk being supplied with saturated liquids through a small round jet which impinges at the center of the disk has been studied experimentally employing refrigerant R12 at comparatively high pressures from 0.6 to 2.8 MPa. Generalized correlations, predicting the CHF within an experimental range of liquid-to-vapor density ratio 5.3–41.25 and the reciprocal of Weber number 2 × 10−3–2 × 10−7, are given for three different characteristic regimes: V-regime where the CHF increases with an increase in the jet velocity, I-regime where the CHF is nearly constant with jet velocity, and HP-regime where the CHF appears only at high pressure and again rises with an increase in the jet velocity.
