Analysis of Formation of Water-in-Oil Emulsions

This work analyzes water-in-oil emulsion formation in a Taylor-Couette shear cell. ASTM certified brine is the dispersed phase, and an assortment of crude and model oils are used as continuous phases. This work employs the pulsed field gradient with diffusion editing (PFG-DE) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique to measure the drop size distributions.
