Film boiling experiments were carried out in an aqueous-calcium sulfate solution. The experimental results indicate that scale formation on heating surfaces during evaporation of a calcium sulfate solution can be avoided under carefully controlled conditions. Experimental heat transfer results for both distilled water and aqueous calcium solutions compare very well with analytical predictions. In addition, for high heat fluxes, contact between liquid and heating surface was found to exist during stable film boiling in a quiescent, saturated or almost saturated liquid.
