Experimental data are presented for the phase distribution of high pressure (2.75 to 5.5 MPa) steam-water mixtures at horizontal, equal-sided dividing tee junctions of two different sizes (49.3 and 97.3 mm i.d.). These data correspond to wide ranges of inlet qualities, inlet superficial vapor velocities, and extraction rates. Influences of the independent parameters on the phase-distribution phenomenon are presented and discussed. Comparisons between the present data and existing models have shown that the applicability of some models can be extended to the present test conditions.
