This work consists of an experimental analysis of the liquid-liquid two-phase flow of water-kerosene through a vertical bend. The duct has diameter of 0.026 m, the bend radius is 0.125 m and the superficial velocities of the water and kerosene ranged from 0.1 to 1.0 m/s. The pressures drops were measured by differential pressure transducers SMAR LD301, the holdups were determined by the method of trapping fluid using quick-closing valves and the flow patterns was determined using a high-speed camera. The bend pressure gradient is increased with the superficial velocities of both phases. The bend coefficient has no correlation with the mixture Reynolds number, such as in single-flows. The modified Reynolds number proposed by [1] described accurately the bend flow pattern.
