The Purpose of this paper is to study the effective parameters on the performance of the eddy interaction model (EIM) for droplet dispersion and deposition in a wave-plate mist eliminator. The gas droplet flow inside the eliminator has been studied using Eulerian-Lagrangian method. Reynolds stress model (RSM) with enhanced wall treatment has been applied for gas flow simulations and the gas flow field inside the bends of the eliminator has been studied. The results show that eddy lifetime constant (CL) should be changed for different gas flow velocities and the value of this parameter changes with gas flow Reynolds number. For validation of numerical simulations, the results are compared with available experimental and numerical data in the literature which shows the good agreement. Finally, effects of changes in number of bends on pressure drop and removal efficiency of a wave-plate mist eliminator has been investigated.
