Evaporation of atomized liquids on hot surfaces is identified as an interesting technical process, characterized by very high values of specific heat fluxes. An experimental apparatus, expressely built for the evaluation of heat transfer mechanisms in mist cooling with low excess temperatures, is described. A mathematical model, based on the assumption of dropwise evaporation, is used to correlate the experimental results.
