To investigate in a laboratory the performance of an 8-stage centrifugal pump in a specially designed experimental and instrumented circuit operating with oil-water and oil-water-gas mixtures and various compositions; to investigate the formation of emulsion, phase inversion, and degradation of the performance of the centrifugal pump. View the two-phase water-air and water-oil flow inside a rotor of a BCS in order to observe the phenomena involved in the centrifugal field flow. To study in the workbench the formation of emulsion, its stability, and the influence of chemical additives.
