Multiple droplets are drops of water that continuously dropped onto a surface. Spray cooling is an application of the use of droplet on a cooling system. Spray cooling is usually used in a cooling system of electronic devices, and material quenching. In this study, correlations between Weber number and surface temperature decrease rate during multiple droplets impingement are investigated and analyzed. Visualization process is used to help determine the evaporation time of droplets impingement by using high speed camera. Induction stove is used to maintain a stainless steel surface temperature at 120°C, 140°C, and 160°C. The Weber number was varied at 15, and 52.5 to simulate low and medium Weber number. The result of this study shows that increase in Weber number does not increase the temperature decrease rate noticeably. Whereas the Weber number decrease the time required for surface temperature to reach its lowest surface temperature. It was also found that for low and medium Weber number, Weber number affect the evaporation time of multiple droplets after impingement.
