Vapor-liquid separation is essentially one type of maldistribution.
While maldistribution exists as a problem, it provides a possibility for creating vapor-liquid separation.
This paper experimentally investigates refrigerant R134a vapor-liquid separation in vertical impacting T-junctions and parametric effects on liquid separation performance.
The vertical branch diameter of a T-junction also affects the vapor-liquid separation performance.
