Steam water separator is the core equipment of nuclear power plant. It is very vital for improving the efficiency of the steam separator to study the impact characteristics between the droplets and the curved dry wall of the steam separator under the action of the rotating air flow. In this paper, the characteristics of droplet impinging on the dry wall in the rotating flow field are analyzed by establishing a visualization experimental device. A high-speed camera was used to capture the impact of droplets with different diameters on the dry wall of a non-wetting curved surface at different gas velocities. At the same time, using image processing tool in MATLAB to obtain image boundary information. The characteristics of spreading factor, droplet deformation factor and initial diffusion velocity of droplets impacting the surface dry wall under different wind speeds are studied.
