Abstract/Summary A horizontal rotating drum dipping into a shallow pool of liquid picks up an adhering layer of the liquid. The thickness of this layer depends primarily on the liquid viscosity, the drum speed and the drum diameter. It is not greatly affected by the depth of immersion into the pool of liquid. Layer thicknesses, δ, have been obtained with cylinders of four diametewrs and viscous fluids with a range of viscosities. The results can be correlated by a constant value of δρg/μND = 1.15 ±0.05. The work has been applied to the design of a molasses cooler for an Australian sugar factory.
