Impinging streams technology has been widely used in many applications in recent years because of its enhancement to the heat and mass transfer between phases. In this paper, in order to investigate the influences of the impinging distance and flow rate on the characters of the flow field, gas-gas impinging streams flow fields are tested experimentally and analyze qualitatively with particle image velocimetry (PIV). The experimental equipment consists of two opposite nozzles which are the same axis. A PIV system is used to measure the characters of the 2-D flow field between two opposite nozzles. The gas is delivered by a compressor through two opposite jets which could be seeded with oil droplets as tracer particles. The effects of the flow rate and impinging distance on the velocity fields of impinging zone are investigated in detail. As the flow rate increases from 0.2 m3/h to 0.8 m3/h, the width of impinging zone increases from 0.25 to 0.5. However, the range of impinging zone does not change significantly as the impinging distance increases from 61mm to 94mm. The results indicate that the PIV technique is an effective method to measure and analyze the characters of impinging streams.
