The various factors influencing the regime transition point in gas-liquid bubble columns are examined. Increasing gas density delays regime transition. This phenomenon is described in a qualitative way by the correlations of Reilly [1] and Wilkinson [2] of which the Reilly correlation is found to be more accurate. However, both correlations are unable to account for the influence of the addition of small quantities of surface tension reducing agents. The Reilly and Wilkinson correlations are also not adequate to describe the influence of the addition of catalyst particles on the transition point for a bubble column slurry reactor.
