Default Particles leave my domain (Discrete Particle Model)

diffo is on a distinguished road
Hi everybody,

I have modelled a container and i use the Air blast Atomizer to spray on the floor. I use the "Wall-Film" boundary condition for the floor and the Walls. What happens is:
The particle leave my container once they reach the edges and are still to be seen. They seem to hang in space but out of my domain.
When i save my calculation and re-read "case and Data", there is a long list of particle that are announce to be missing. I assume, these are the ones that have left my domain.

Has anyone a clue, how to prevent them from leaving while forming a film?
