Cyclones Our range of high efficiency cyclones are centrifugal separators which have been designed using computer aided programmes incorporating the latest advances in the design of this type of separator.
Using the specific parameters of any particular application, the pressure losses and separating efficiencies can be predicted precisely.
The dust laden gas enters the upper cylindrical section of the cyclone tangentially and moevs down the cyclone into the conical section in a spiral shaped path. Dust particles move to the outer shell by centrifugal forces and are slowed down by friction and at the bottom of the cone, drop out of the air stream into the drop out box. This is fitted with a deflector to ensure that particles are not reentrained into the exit vortex which carries the clean gas back up through the cyclone and vertically out of the outlet.
The cyclones are used in all types of industry and serve not only as a dust separator but also in the recovery of products from an air stream.
The materials of manufacture are selected according to the parameters at site and may vary from mild or stainless steel through to fibre reinforced plastics and could also incorporate lining material to resist abrasion.
Multiple Cyclones With larger volumes of gas and also to achieve better operating efficiencies, two, four or six stage cyclones with a common collecting hopper can be utilised. The exhause pipes of the cyclones are designed to achieve the operating efficiencies required and the pressure drops available. The type TZ is suitable for course to medium dusts and the type TZL for high separating efficiencies in the smaller dust particle sizes.
Advantages of Centrifugal Separators
Rugged Construction - heavy gauge welded construction assures long, useful life
Low Cost - Our cyclones are high capacity collectors, yet compact in size. The result is minimum collector cost per m3/h of air cleaned
Simple to Maintain - No moving parts
