The Monte Carlo method is used to study the behaviors of droplets in the steam-water separator(SWS). Different from previous researches, this paper presents the significance of droplets collision in the SWS. Our major objectives focus on the outcomes of binary-droplet collision. Three regimes of binary-droplet collision including coalescence, reflexive separation and stretching separation are considered. Then we prove that the relative velocity and initial positions of the binary-droplet determine the outcomes of collision at the same ambient atmosphere and properties of droplets(e.g. viscosity and coefficient of surface tension). The probability distribution of the collision outcomes of the binary-droplet associated with average radius in the condition of both cold and actual operating state in the SWS is performed by the Monte Carlo method.
