Annular space has been applied widely in industrial processes. However, the complexity of thermal process and the variety of influential factors lead to the difficulties. In addition, the sensor installation as well as the weak detection signal due to the barrier increases the detection issues. In order to achieve the visual monitoring of pneumatic transport in annular space, a helical structure sensor based on the direct three-dimensional(3D) Electrical Capacitance Tomography(ECT) is designed in this paper. The 3D sensitivity map in annular space is calculated via the potential value obtained from the finite element analysis software, Ansoft. According to the figures of potential and sensitivity field distribution, the relative characteristic is summarized, which is the foundation to reconstruct the direct 3D image accurately.
