Cyclonic separation

Centrifugal collectors

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.

Cyclone Filter is suitable for the separation of large particles and large amount of particulate in the process air.

Single-cyclone separators

They create a dual vortex to separate coarse from fine dust. The main vortex spirals downward and carries most of the coarser dust particles. The inner vortex, created near the bottom of the cyclone, spirals upward and carries finer dust particles.
Cyclones with relatively large diameter to length ratio. These cyclones have very moderate degree of separation and is mainly used in woodworking industry.

Nominal pressure drop range: 40-60mm.vp

Multiple-cyclone separators

Multiple-cyclone separators consist of a number of small-diameter cyclones, operating in parallel and having a common gas inlet and outlet and operate on the same principle as single cyclone separators -- creating an outer downward vortex and an ascending inner vortex.

Multiple-cyclone separators remove more dust than single cyclone separators because the individual cyclones have a greater length and smaller diameter. The longer length provides longer residence time while the smaller diameter creates greater centrifugal force. These two factors result in better separation of dust particulates. The pressure drop of multiple-cyclone separators collectors is higher than that of single-cyclone separators, requiring more energy to clean the same amount of air.

Nominal pressure drop range: 60-100mm.vp

High performance cyclone separators

These cyclones have a high degree of separation. Visually similar to the battery cyclones but differs in that the cyclone body made ​​larger relative to the inlet and outlet. These cyclones can also be assembled into battery at high gas flows.

Nominal pressure drop range: 80-100mm.vp
