Much less attention has been focused on the particle deposition in rectifying plate though it is a common problem in shale gas pipe systems. The effects of particle parameter and flow field on the deposition and distribution of particle in a new‐type rectifying plate system are investigated. Both the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method and the experiment method are used in order to analyze the particle deposition under various conditions. The accuracy of simulation model is verified with measurements in the experiment and from analyzing, and it is found that the Boltzmann equation can well describe the relationship between gas Reynolds number and particle deposition in the rectifying plate system. It is also found from investigation that the particle deposition is greatly affected by the particle parameter. Deposition rate rises with the increase of the particle diameter; however, it reduces gradually with the decrease of particle shape factor. Moreover, the particle mass concentration is an essential dimension that can give a prediction of where the particle may deposit.
