Abstract: In this paper we present a new method for the production of bubble-liquid suspensions (from now on BLS) composed of micron-sized bubbles and with gas to liquid volume ratios larger than unity. We show that the BLS gas fraction ʎ=Qg and Q1 , being Qg and Q1 the flow rates of gas and liquid, respectively, is controlled by a dimensionless parameter which accounts for the ratio of the gas pressure inside the device to the liquid viscous pressure drop from the orifices where the liquid is injected to the exit, where the BLS is obtained. This parameter permits the correct scaling of the BLS gas volume fraction of all the experiments presented.
