In order to simulate the separation efficiency of gas scrubbers, we have formulated and implemented a version of the Single-Particle Method. The method is suitable for CFD simulations of gas-droplet flows, and is based on using Lagrangian tracking of droplets. An implementation of the method has been made in a commercial CFD tool. The methodology and the CFD implementation have been validated against analytical results in the literature.
