Experimental data on the drop size distribution obtained from multiple nozzles in a spray column are presented and analyzed. For nozzles having a diameter above the critical size, the distribution pattern change from near normal monomodal to bimodal and back again to monomodal but skewed toward the larger size fraction. There is no change in the observed maximum drop size in the distribution with flow rate except near the critical velocity region. Drop breakup mechanisms appear to be different from the above pattern for nozzles below a critical size. A model is proposed for prediction of the complete range of drop sizes observed.
