Cyclonic separation is a method of removing particulates from an air, gas or liquid stream, without the use of filters, through vortex separation. Rotational effects and gravity are used to separate mixtures of solids and fluids. The method can also be used to separate fine droplets of liquid from a gaseous stream.
Dust laden gas or air enters the collector tangentially and follows a spiral path to the bottom of the cone.
The centrifugal force created by the circular flow throws the dust particles toward the wall of the cyclone.
After striking the wall, the combination of the gravitational and swirling forces causes the dust to move downward to the dust outlet. Pressure drop for normal operation is about 3 – 4 inches of water. They are very efficient in collecting dust particles down to 30 microns in size. Efficiency of the equipment depends on the material being conveyed, material/air flow rates, and cyclone design. Depending upon the application, cyclone separator can be designed in single, twin and quad arrangement and multiclone.
