A study of atomization has been made with an external mixing-type pneumatic atomizer. The drops were sampled on Vaseline-coated cells using a shutter arrangement and their sizes were measured under a microscope. The effects of liquid viscosity, liquid surface tension, liquid flow rate, air velocity, and nozzle angle on drop size have been studied. A model, which explains adequately the influence of various factors, has been proposed. This model predicts the values of average drop sizes over a wide range of operating conditions. The model also explains the data of other investigators who have used other kinds of pneumatic atomizers.
