The changes of a droplet breakup regime at transition from an inertial to a viscous turbulence subrange are analyzed for pipe flow. Equations for evaluation of the maximum droplet size in both breakup regimes, as well as conditions for the breakup regime transition, are formulated as functions of the Reynolds and Weber numbers for a pipeline flow. Numerical values for the coefficients of the equations derived are estimated.
