The motion of spray water through a counter flow of high-temperature gases is experimentally studied on a macroscopic level using optical techniques for diagnostics of two-phase liquid-gas and vapor-liquid flows. It is found that the initial temperature, concentration of typical impurities, and dispersity of water influence the component composition of the forming gas-vapor-droplet mixture. The integral characteristics of evaporation of solitary droplets with initial sizes (conditional characteristic radii) of 3-5 mm and a spray water flow with droplets less than 0.5 mm across through a high-temperature gaseous medium are compared.
