—The bubble coalescence and the transition concentration in a dispersion column have been experimentally studied in this study work by adopting isobutanol-water mixture as a liquid phase and air as a gas phase. The experimental work included the following experimental variables; the weight percent of isobutanol in water and superficial gas velocity of air. The using of two distributors single-orifice and multi-orifice, bubble size, gas holdup and gas-liquid interfacial area are measured. The experimental results have showed that the isobutanol transition concentration is successfully correlated as a function of superficial air velocity, ct
. This equation gives mean deviation of 4.501%.
