Recently, separation of fine liquid droplets from gaseous flow medium has become an important subject for process and aerospace industry. The aim of this work is to study collection efficiency of high concentration droplets from high velocity air stream using electrostatic separators. To improve the separation efficiency, different designs of separator were studied experimentally including wire-to-plate and wire-to-cylinder designs. The results demonstrated that two-stage planar and cylindrical separators, if designed properly, could provide high collection efficiencies for both small and large particle sizes at high concentration conditions.
