Abstract [en]

Inertial separation of dust from air/gas streams using settling- or baffle chambers is simple and cost effective. In order to increase the effectiveness of a single chamber AerosolTrap has been developed. This new device uses 4 chambers in series, stacked on top of each other. The aim of the present study is to examine the performance of AerosolTrap and investigate if CFD simulations can be used as a tool to optimize its geometry. Simulations and validating laboratory experiments have been performed using different flows and different mix of particles. The paper describes the methodology used and presents results that show that CFD simulations predict the general characteristics of the AerosolTrap well but underestimates the separation coefficient slightly.
