Abstract

A mathematical model for predicting particle collection efficiency in an atomizing scrubber has been developed. The model solves the diffusion equations for both droplets and particles by using particle in cell technique. The effect of scrubber size and water distribution from various points of injection have been studied on collection efficiency. The results of the mathematical prediction agrees very well with the data reported in the literature for a wide variety of operating conditions and configurations.
