Electrostatic precipitators are widely used in power generation and industry to separate solid particles from flue gases. They need relatively homogeneous distribution of the flue gas inside otherwise the required efficiency cannot be ensured. The paper shows how to approach some of possible troubles with distribution of the stream inside of the filters caused by unsuitable design of ducts in front of the device or by inlet parts of filters. Three filters in operation are presented as examples which seem to be similar, but their behaviour is different. CFD simulations partialy validated by measurement were used to evaluate the existing flow situation. Design changes were proposed and further investigated to improve the flows in the precipitator.
