Experimental values of both the minimum wall temperatures for spheroidal state and the total vaporization times of water, n-octane and carbon tetrachloride drops are presented. A novel apparatus was used and tests were run in a wall temperature range scarcely investigated by other authors. Vaporization times are compared with correlations accounting for the diffusive evaporation and these are suggested to be applied in ranges different from those recommended by the authors.
