This work presents an uncertainty study in the numerical simulation of the air-water droplet motion through three types of drift eliminators using the grid convergence index (GCI) method. The analysis of independence of the results with respect to the fineness of mesh is developed with special emphasis on the influence of the nondimensional sub-layer scaled distance. The coefficient of pressure drop and the droplet collection efficiency are numerically calculated. It may be concluded that using the GCI method leads to reliable numerical results, but it is also necessary to establish a sufficiently fine mesh near the walls.
