Abstract: 
Experimental studies on the frictional pressure drop in two tapered bubble columns using non-Newtonian pseudoplastic liquid have been reported. The effects of taper angle on frictional pressure drop have been investigated. Empirical correlation has been developed for the prediction of the frictional pressure drop as a function of various measurable parameters of the system. The correlation is statistically acceptable.
