Title (EN) METHOD OF INDUCING OR PREVENTING THE MERGING OF DROPLETS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'INDUCTION OU DE PRÉVENTION DE LA FUSION DE GOUTTELETTES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a method of merging droplets in a channel area having a substantially constant, corner-free cross-section, comprising: –providing a flow of carrier fluid in the channel area; –providing at least one droplet of a first fluid and at least one droplet of a second fluid within the carrier fluid, the first fluid and the second fluid being immiscible with the carrier fluid; –displacing the droplet of first fluid and the droplet of second fluid along the channel area by the flow of carrier fluid, the droplet of first fluid traveling ahead of the droplet of second fluid, and the droplet of second fluid traveling at a greater velocity than the droplet of first fluid.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de fusion de gouttelettes dans une zone de canal ayant une section transversale sensiblement constante sans coin, comprenant : - la fourniture d'un flux de fluide porteur dans la zone de canal ; - la fourniture d'au moins une gouttelette d'un premier fluide et d'au moins une gouttelette d'un second fluide à l'intérieur du fluide porteur, le premier fluide et le second fluide étant non miscibles avec le fluide porteur ; - le déplacement de la gouttelette du premier fluide et de la gouttelette du second fluide le long de la zone de canal par l'écoulement de fluide porteur, la gouttelette du premier fluide se déplaçant à l'avant de la gouttelette du second fluide et la gouttelette du second fluide se déplaçant à une vitesse supérieure à celle de la gouttelette du premier fluide.
