This high degree of efficiency must not be "bought" by an increase in operating costs, because the mist collector operates with the cross-flow principle: The filter inserts are open at the bottom and are passed horizontally, whilst the separated particles, which combine in the medium to form coalescent droplets, are drained downwards by gravity.

For the class of haploid exchangeable population models with non-overlapping generations and population size N it is shown that, as N tends to infinity, convergence of the time-scaled ancestral process to Kingman's coalescent and convergence in distribution of the scaled times back to the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) to the corresponding times back to the MRCA of the Kingman coalescent are equivalent.
