Abstract

A design strategy allowing the development of an inexpensive microdevice with a cylindrical section able to work at high pressures is established. The setup combines good optical access, high‐pressure resistance, homogeneous operation conditions, fast process control and detection, and the ability to generate a stable two‐phase flow. The experiments are conducted in the ionic liquid 1‐butyl‐3‐methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate and supercritical carbon dioxide flow under isothermal conditions. The two‐phase flow system is observed with a high‐speed camera. An image processing procedure is performed on the films in order to determine the global two‐phase flow geometrical characterizations.
