Cyclone 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. Multiple-cyclone separators consist of a number of small-diameter cyclones, operating in Parallel and having a parallel gas inlets and outlets, as shown in the figure. Multiple-cyclone separators operate on the same principle as cyclones—creating a main downward vortex and an ascending inner vortex.
Multiple-cyclone separators are more efficient than single cyclones because they are longer and smaller in 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.
Multiple-cyclone separators dust collectors are found in all types of power and industrial applications, including pulp and paper plants, cement plants, steel mills, petroleum coke plants, metallurgical plants, saw mills, Rice Mills, Flour Mills and other kinds of facilities that process dust.
- Stable pressure drop for a given gas flow
- Constant efficiency for a given particulate condition
- No moving parts; no replaceable filters
- Ability to handle extremely high dust concentration
- High temperature capability
On industrial coarse particulate, Multi Cyclones is 95% to 98% efficient. Efficiency is a function of the physical parameters of the application and the design parameters of the cyclone. Cyclone efficiency increases with:
- Coarse particle size distribution
- Higher product specific gravity
- Lower gas density
We offer our efficient multi cyclone separators in capacities from 500 cfm to 15000 cfm and have the capability to remove moderate to large size particles from the air stream.
