In this paper, 5 samples of one kind of swirl injector with tangential inlets, which has been designed and manufactured by using CNC, have been tested. Above injector has a spray cone in the shape of very thin layer because it is formed an air core in injector center. In fact, this is a one-fluid injector but its operation is two-phase. In order to detect acceptable injector among them, characterization tests have been done in the propulsion laboratory of Tarbiat Modarres University for all sample injectors. The methods of experimental characterization have been described in detail in current paper and also important parameters introduced. In these tests, injection uniformity, symmetry, mass flow rate versus pressure difference and some other parameter such as spray cone angle are investigated. Experimental results have been compared with design points. Finally, one injector has been selected as a suitable and nearer to theoretical design injector among them. The selected injector can be used for validation of numerical analysis results and also doing some complemental microscopic experiments. The results show good agreement between theoretical predictions and experimental results.
