Dust Collection Research

A hydrocyclone (often referred to by the shortened form cyclone) is a device to classify, separate or sort particles in a liquid suspension based on the ratio of their centripetal force to fluid resistance.This ratio is high for dense (where separation by density is required) and coarse (where separation by size is required) particles, and low for light and fine particles.

Cyclone separator

Cyclone Separator. By: Waqas Ahmed B.Sc. Mechanical Engg 25 Feb 2014 Definition Cyclones are mostly used for removing industrials dust from air or process gases. They are the principal type of gas-solid separator Most common form of particulate removal gas is spun rapidly heavier particulate matter to collect on outside of separator by centrifugal force, where it is collected and removed.

Cyclone design

Cyclonic separation is a method of removing particulates from an air, gas or liquid stream, without the use of filters, through vortex separation. When removing particulate matter from liquid, a hydrocyclone is used; while from gas, a gas cyclone is used. Rotational effects and gravity are used to separate mixtures of solids and fluids. The method can also be used to separate fine droplets of ...

So then, how

Design and fabrication of cyclone separator

This article discusses the most common cyclone separator design, the involute entry type with a counterflow, coaxial clean air outlet. Operating Principle – Dust-laden air enters the cylindrical/conical body of the cyclone tangentially at the top and the flow assumes a vortex pattern as it travels helically downward, Figure 1.

(PDF) Engineering Design & Specifications of Cyclone Separator

From the early 1960's until the mid 1980's, dense medium cyclone circuitry design technology did not change appreciably. The basic design, which was both highly flexible and highly efficient, was consistent with technology developed by the Dutch State Mines ("DSM") in the mid 1940's. During this period, the "typical" dense medium cyclone circuit was designed to process raw coal ...


A gas-solid cyclone separator is a separation device that separates solid particles from a gas phase by the use of a centrifugal force eld. In traditional spray drying a cyclone separator is often included in a succeeding separation step, after a spray drying chamber. This thesis a study of whether spray drying in cyclone separators is possible.
