The measurement of bubble point, largest pore size, and pore size distribution is based on the Laplace's equation.
The transported fluids are often near their bubble point and may evaporate due to changes in process conditions, either planned or caused by process upsets.
When developing new membranes for MD, the maximisation of membrane permeability and hydrophobicity in terms of bubble point pressure and contact angle are obviously desirable, as are low fouling and chemical and mechanical stability [3].
At a constant pressure, the saturated vapor of the blend will be at a higher temperature than the saturated liquid, thus the term "temperature glide." This also means that at a given pressure, there are now two saturation temperatures to consider: saturated liquid temperature (also known as bubble point) and saturated vapor temperature (also known as dew point).
* Pore size: A rating based on the bubble point of the membrane, which indicates particle retention of the membrane.

As depth increases, the mole fraction of light components decreases, density increases, and bubble point pressure, oil FVF, and GOR decrease.
From property bubble point of view, Hui (2010), Malpezzi and Maclennan (2001), and Goodman and Thibodeau (2008) have identified income, rent, and interest rate as important factors in assessing speculative bubble than the ratios of housing price to income (P-I ratio) and housing price to rent (P-R ratio), two basic indicators in measuring housing affordability and housing prices.
To customarily verify that the sterilizing-grade filter is flawless, nondestructive filter integrity tests, such as bubble point, diffusive flow or pressure decay are used.
Oil viscosity is a strong function of many thermodynamic and physical properties such as pressure, temperature, solution gas-oil ratio, bubble point pressure, gas gravity and oil gravity.
