Cyclones are widely used devices to separate a dispersed phase (e.g. particles or droplets) from a continuous phase. The separation of particles in coaxial channels with different length is considered in paper. In this study we show that as coaxial channels length grows, the efficiency increases. In addition we demonstrate that as a gap between cylinder components is reduced, the aerosol spray efficiency is reduced also in turbulent flow.
