Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the most practical method of removing water mist from aircraft cabins. Three separation systems were tested: Ci) cyclone separation, (2) filter separation, and (3) electrical precipitation.Cyclones proved to be impractical because of their size and pressure drop. Filters were found to require very little space but tended to be very sensitive to droplet size; in addition, they clogged rapidly with ice under freezing conditions. Experiments with electrical precipitation showed that this system eliminated many of the drawbacks of the other two systems; however, it was inferior to the filter in regard to size aid complexity.
